Importing .dat file
 
Hey, I was wondering if it were possible for me to construct a text file of the verticies, then faces, for the geometry I'd like to create. I've figured out that if i do something like
4 10
(and create 10 edges, 4 points a piece, giving x,y,z coordinates)
...
save it as a .dat file, I can have gambit open it as vertices and edges, but I don't know how to code it so the edges can be inputed as faces. I've tried clicking face then net surface and get nothing. If I could do this, and then create a solid from the faces (or create the solid from the verticies) it would be tremendously time saving... Thanks in advance for your help..
