Various menu commands are available when right-clicking on UGrid items in the Project Explorer.

Project Explorer

New Empty UGrid 2D... 
Creates a new UGrid object in the Project Explorer. This UGrid will initially have no parameters or properties set. This allows properties and parameters to be defined at a later time. Elevation data can be interpolated to the UGrid.
New UGrid 2D... 
Brings up the New UGrid dialog.
New UGrid 3D... 
Brings up the New UGrid dialog.

UGrid in Project Explorer

Right-clicking on a UGrid item in the Project Explorer provides the following menu commands:

New MODFLOW 
Creates a new MODFLOW simulation.
Export... 
Brings up a dialog that allows exporting the UGrid to a file.
Triangulate 
Creates triangles from existing vertices on the active TIN using the Delauney criteria. If triangles already exist, they will be deleted.
Isosurface Volumes 
Extrude Down To 3D UGrid...
Brings up a dialog allowing you to specify layer thicknesses to create a 3D UGrid from a 2D UGrid.
3D → 2D... 
Creates a UGrid with 2D cells from a specified layer of a 3D UGrid.
Zoom To Extents 
Frames the Graphics Window around the selected objects.
Unlock/Lock to Prevent Editing 
Can be turned on or off to allow editing. When in the locked status, cells and points cannot be deleted nor can triangulated elements be split, merged, or swapped. By default a ugrid is locked when first created.
Properties 
Brings up the UGrid Properties dialog.

UGrid Dataset

Right-clicking on a UGrid dataset brings up the following commands:

Z Values → Dataset 
Creates a dataset from the Z locations of the cells or points. Only for 2D UGrids.
Map to Z Values 
Moves the cell or point Z locations to the values in the dataset. Only for 2D UGrids.
Convert to Node Dataset 
Converts a cell centered dataset to a node dataset. Node dataset values are assigned by averaging the connected cells.
Convert to Cell Dataset 
Converts a node dataset to a cell centered dataset. Cell dataset values are assigned by averaging the connected nodes.
Interpolate to 
Brings up the Interplation Options dialog. The data object to interpolate to is selected in this dialog.
Interpolate to Raster 
Opens the Interpolate to Raster dialog.
Properties 
Opens the Dataset Info dialog.
