It would be great to see the functions available in the NetCDF module for reading the NetCDF dimensions available in ArcMap as a Geoprocessing tool that can be utilized in modelbuilder.  That is the final piece of the puzzle to creating a model that will iterate through all of the NetCDF layers, create the layer, determine all the available dimension values and create rasters from that information.  The ability to select different dimensions is available manually, but would be great to have the functionality so that it can be utilized in model builder. 

The netCDF4 module is included with ArcGIS starting iwth the 10.3 release, and with all versions of ArcGIS Pro.

Status changed to: Implemented

Python support for NetCDF is available via the included GDAL package, the Unidata supported netCDF4 package, xarray for higher level access of multidimensional arrays,  and h5py for HDF files. We also have dramatically improved the integration with NetCDF and other multidimensional formats in the software since this request was made.
