.dat file is not supported format. The size is very small. Probably, you have no data generally.
You need to generate another format in 3d modelling system, namely one of shown on the pic

The format of the text file is probably the issue... Check that your format aligns with the requirements...

Or perhaps you just don't have the display right...

Are your points turned on? Is your part turned on? If you check the message window, does it say anything about how many points were created?

The file had the (x,y) co-ordinates. the z co-ordinate was missing, which is 0.

Thank you all.

Simon- I have been reading your post and comments for quite some time now. You are amazing dude. Hats off to you.

I think you need the third row, even if it is just a column of zeros...

Here are some examples (attached).

I was not giving z-co-ordinates, thus nothing was visible while importing the geometry.
