# [SciPy-User] 3D array problem in Python

```Use np.where() or logical indexing (same thing, really) to mask your
array, then perform the operations. Let's say your array is called A:

A[float(A) == 0.0] = 0.0

A[float(A) != 0.0] = [...etc.]

This, of course, only works if the operation for an entry doesn't depend
on other entries in the array; but it should give you a great speed gain.

Cheers;
