Muk3D v2019.4.1 is now available!

Muk3D v2019.4.1 was released today. New features in this release of Muk3D include: Ability to download imagery from TMS servers (e.g. Google maps, ESRI, OpenTopoMap) Muk3D Simulation’s Excel & GoldSim interface has been released.  This module will be available under a separate license but is available until January 2020 at…

Creating storage elevation curves for TSFs

A frequently asked question is how can storage elevation curves for TSFs be created in Muk3D. While Muk3D provides tools for quickly creating storage elevation curves for ponds, when we need to incorporate beach slopes and ponds it becomes more complicated. We’ve just posted a new tutorial on our support…

Muk3D v2019.3.1 is now available!

Download links for Muk3D v2019.3.1 have been sent out to users. In this release, the primary enhancement was the addition of a new animation system, accessible through Tex/Animation/Create animation script. This will create a script file, that when executed, will create an AVI file with the animation in it. The…

New animation framework

While Muk3D has some basic tools for creating animations (flyovers), they don’t offer much flexibility. In Muk3D v2019.3.1 a new animation framework has been implemented that provides a lot more user control over movement of the camera, morphs between grids, and animates objects (surfaces, polylines etc). Several types of cameras…

Updated Zones module

Zones is a module in Muk3D that allows for the creation of 3D dam layers/geometry from a 2D cross section. Once the layers are created, volumes for each material type can be done. One of the great things about Zones is that once cross section geometry has been defined, it…

Dambreak modelling

AS of Muk3D v2019.2.1, there are some tools for simple geometric models for dambreaks. These tools are only suited to ‘sunny day’ failures or slumping. They model the gravity driven movement of tailings and can not simulate the impact of water mobilising a large volume of tailings. This approach is…

Johannesburg training, July 2019

We love to invite Muk3D users in South Africa to join us from July 19 – 21, 2019 for some Muk3D training in Johannesburg. Over the 3 days we’ll be covering the basics of using Muk3D for general 3D modelling and tailings planning. Day 3 will be focused on scripting…
