Hello,

Does anyoane knows how to import several points in Design Modeler?

For example i have 50 points that are describing a spline curve(i have = i have the 3d coordinates - x,y,z) and i want to import them to Design Modeler and there i want to create a spline curve.
Can Design Modeler import "point files" or do i have to make a script? If this thing works only with a script does anyoane have an example of such a script?

Thanks in advance,
DH

I am relatively new to DesignModeler and have the same question you had. Did you figure it out or do you have any advice?

Thanks!

You can find here:
How to insert points to DesignModeler of Ansys?

I will paste-it for you anyway:

#------------------------------------------------------------
# List of Point Coordinates
# Format is: integer Group, integer ID, X, Y, Z
# all delimited by spaces, with nothing after the Z value.
# Group 1
1 1 20.1234 25.4321 30.5678
1 2 25.2468 30.1357 35.1928
1 3 15.5555 16.6666 17.7777
#Group 2
2 1 50.0101 100.2021 7.1515
2 2 -22.3456 .8765 -.9876
2 3 21.1234 22.4321 23.5678
#------------------------------------------------------------

make a text file with above format, then to import into design modeller,goto [Create] menu -> Point
and select the file you've just created.

good luck
