Hello,

I have a spreadsheet of x,y,z data and want to plot the points in gambit to create geometry. Since it's a lot of data it is not possible to input manually. Is there a way to load the data onto Gambit and make it plot?

You can import xyz type point data in Gambit from the menuy using File/Import/Vertex Data.

1. This is an example of how to import three columns - x,y z, vertex data. The first line must contain the number of points and the number of curves example: 1 129 for 1 curve and 129 points. open the file 2. get rid of all text 3. get rid of duplicate set of data 4. get rid of any blank line

5. Save this page as a text file in the C:\temp directory - "filename.txt"

6. Run GAMBIT (from the run command)

7. In GAMBIT - in the Command Text box enter

import vertexdata "C:\temp\|filename.txt"

8. If all goes well you should see 129 points in the graphics window

Dear Taher,

Thanks for your explanation,

I tried the same, but the got the following

ERROR: Error reading number of points per curve and number of curves.

ERROR(850) - UNTERMINATED STRING VALUE

I took care of no text, no duplicate data and no blank line in my .txt file.

I just have

1 in the first line and

129 in the second line

where did i do mistake.....please let me know.

Thanks and Regards

your text file should look something like this- the first error is because 1 and 129 are both on the first line with a space inbetween.

For example: ----------------- 1 5 0.0 1.0 0 0.1 1.1 0 0.2 1.2 0 0.3 1.3 0 0.4 1.4 0

----------------

number of curves must be greater than 1
