Hi,

I came across the FloPy module when I was looking for ways to use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for a project. It seems like it isn't natively included, but I think it would be extremely useful, especially for the utility industry, if it were included.

I agree with adding this, we could use also.

Hello @RPGIS and @BillHagerman thanks for your suggestion. We've discussed this with our team and a couple of related teams, and at this time are not planning to add FloPy directly to our distribution because we don't have allied use of CFD based solutions in any core software.

That said, you can install FloPy by following its installation instructions:

https://github.com/modflowpy/flopy#installation

If you start a Python Command Prompt session in a custom environment, you can run conda install conda-forge::flopy or the install command they used above. You can also install it through pip. We continually evaluate the package set, but typically the packages that end up directly in the core software are either (a) used by the tools that we develop themselves or (b) show a broad and general pattern of utility for a large number of customers.

Thanks for your time,
Shaun
