Hi guys, just stumbled across this thread. Attempted to revive it but the issue is relevant to Design Modeler so felt it would be more suitable here. Apologies to mods if this isn't convention.

I'm trying to import a large number of points and need a way to connect them all together and bound them by the z axis. It is elevation data that I am trying to import.

I have processed it on MATLAB and applied what has been discussed earlier to keep it between -500 and 500 for the x and y axis. I can't import my data in one as it exceeds 10000 but I've split it into different files. I find that I can import the files easily when clicking Create - Point - Create Coordinates file but when trying to create a 3D Curve (Concept - 3D Curve), I return the error message that declares that it can't read the file.

I have also tried to close the curve too which hasn't help.

I believe that this may be due to the points possibly intersecting with themselves but that is necessary in regards to what I need to do. Does anyone have a method that would allow me to connect all these points together?

Attached an example file.
