Not sure if others run into this problem, but when importing block models from third parties there is a strange insistence to export the entire block model, corner to corner!
To name names, this seems to be common with our Vulcan and Gemcom friends. This can produce csv files 2-10gb when there is only relevant information for 100-300mb.
MicroMine seems to hang-up and often fail on these extremely large csv imports ~+8gb. The failures, unfortunately, often occur after several wasted minutes attempting to import the csv. Is anyone else experiencing this?
I have thought about asking for models filtered on export, this is not an option in most cases. It's unclear why so many estimators don't think 10gb files waste everybody's time, but here we are.
As a bit of a work around I have been pre-filtering with Python, ImportLargeBlockModels, I then import the filtered csv as usual.
Would anyone else like or use a feature that filters a csv on import based on null or zero attributes?
