The process for doing this is similar to that of saving native text files. In the MODFLOW Global/Basic Package dialog, there is an option to Save MODFLOW 6 copy. When this option is selected, MODFLOW 6 files will be generated when running MODFLOW from GMS.
The MODFLOW 6 export option does not function with projects that are incompatible with MODFLOW 6. Projects with unsupported features or parameters will not be successfully exported.
Not all MODFLOW packages are supported in MODFLOW 6. The following table shows the correlation between MODFLOW 6 packages and packages from previous versions of MODFLOW.
|MODFLOW 6 supported packages||Equivalent Mf2k5/USG package|
|CHD, DRN, GHB, RIV, WEL||CHD, DRN, GHB, RIV, WEL|
|DIS, DISV, DISU, TDIS||DIS, DISU|
|EVT, RCH||EVT, ETS, RCH|
|NPF, STO||BCF, HUF, LPF, UPW|
|MVR, GWF, OBS||Not supported|
|Not Supported||DRT, GAGE, MNW1, MNWI, STR, SUB, SWI, OBS, HOB, CHOB, RVOB, STOB, DROB|
MODFLOW 6 Files
The files generated for MDOFLOW6 will appear similar to those created for other versions of MODFLOW. The *.mfn.log file will contain notes about the export and mention any items that could not be exported for MODFLOW 6.
