Check the syntax of the input file for Gambit. I am sure you should be able to manipulate a text file output from excel such that it can be opened in Gambit or CAD. i would imagine iges would be a likely format.

You can import vertex data into Gambit. Save your xyz data in a *.dat file and import to Gambit using >import >vertex data

Try importing a much smaller mesh first, say simply the points on the surface of a square of something. Then see where your error might be coming from.

i am having the same problem too. if one looks at the data file exported from gambit the syntax is different. it may be impossible to import from excel by manually typing a syntax to match so that gambit can read it. is there any VB code that can be used to import vertex data from excel into gambit?
