Pointwise segment file or .dat file example
 
Hello all, I have been reading about how to import a segment file or a .dat file in Pointwise, and I have always encountered the following answer:

c.....nmax is the number of segments
c.....ni(n) is the number of points on segment n
c.....imax is the number of points
integer nmax
integer ni(nmax)
real x(imax), y(imax), z(imax)
do n = 1, nmax
write(1,*) ni(n)
do i = 1, ni(n)
write(1,*) x(i,n), y(i,n), z(i,n)
end do
end do

Or variations of it. The point is, can anyone actually give me a simple .dat file or segment file with one segment and 3 points so i can load it on Pointwise?

I have tried to implement the pseudo-code but I believe I must be doing something very wrong. I use a spreadsheet to implement the pseudo-code but Pointwise never imports my .dat files.

Best regards

Here is a segment file that imports a triangle:

Code:

4
0 0 0
0 1 0
1 0 0
0 0 0

And with multiple segs in one file. This defines a triangle and a square.

Code:

4
1 1 0
1 2 0
2 1 0
1 1 0
5
2 1 0
2 3 0
4 3 0
4 1 0
2 1 0
