I have written several tutorials about how to create a surface grid or elevation grid. Software such as Micromine, Mapinfo Pro and Surfer can generate surface grid from points or contour lines. In this article, I am going to show you how to import the surface grid into Micromine. Micromine supports several types of grids including the Surfer grid (.grd) and Geosoft grid (.gxf).
Before we jump into the tutorial, you may be interested in the following articles:

I assume you have the grid file already. You can read my tutorial in the link above to create a surface grid from the data points or contour. To import a grid, follow these steps:
- Go to File >> Import >> Grid
- Specify the grid file in the Input column.
- Give the name for the output grid.
- Click OK
