MeshMaker: Element depth

Hi there,

I am using MeshMaker to generate axis symmetric radial grid for Tough2 simulations based on the MM examples.

MeshMaker is generating the 'right' MESH file unless that the depth is not fully correct and appears to be truncated to the nearest integer when depth is greater than 1000 m and depth has some decimal numbers.

Is it that MM is exporting the depth value (Z) in the format E10.4 , hence truncating the depth value? So that when the vertical spacing is equal to or less than 0.5 m the depth of two consecutive element might be identical.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong and what to correct if anything.

See below a typical example of the MM input file and extract from the MESH file with highlight of 2 consecutive element depth.
