Stephen Rassenfoss of the JPT has featured Fracture ID in a 4-page article focusing on the uplift provided by drill bit geomechanics in completions optimization and reservoir characterization. The complete article can be found here.

Fracture modeling, based on rock property data gathered during drilling by Fracture ID, shows how the performance of three stages will likely vary due to distinctly different rock properties. The nine figures on the right predict how fracs will develop at each of the perforations. The numbered pictures on the right predict what is likely at the numbered locations along the yellow horizontal well shown on left.
