The Solids → HUF dialog

The Solids → HUF command in the Solids menu of the Solid module can be used to generate the HUF package input data from the solids currently in the project.

This command brings up the Solids → HUF dialog. By turning on the Adjust grid cell elevations option, the 3D grid cell elevations can be adjusted. The Minimum cell thickness edit field allows specifying a minimum cell thickness. When the elevations are adjusted, if a cell has a thickness less than the minimum the bottom cell in that column will be inactivated and the cell elevations will be recalculated. The Fraction spreadsheet contains a row for each layer in the 3D grid. By default, each layer is assigned an equal fraction. Edit the fraction assigned to any layer by checking the Edit option and changing the fraction. Any layers that don't have the Edit option checked are evenly distributed so that the sum of the all the fractions is one.

When selecting OK from the Solids → HUF dialog the solids are intersected by the grid. The intersections of the solids are then converted into HUF hydrogeologic unit top and thickness arrays.
