Converting XYZ co-ordinate data to points in NX11

Genius

Hi all,

 

I have some co-ordinate data of points on a face of a scanned circular profile, which I would like to visualise in NX. Essentially, this data is point cloud data but in Excel format.

 

I would like to input these points to create the profile in a digital environment. Does anyone know if a tool to do this lies within NX's many functions? Hand-entry is fine but if there's a way to input an Excel table or similar that would be even better.

 

Many thanks,

Alex

NX has an import points from file function. I don't think it will use Excel files directly, but you should be able to export your points to a usable text file format fairly easily.

Thank you, this is perfect.

 

Exporting to .txt worked just fine
