 May 27, 2008, 11:58 coordinates in designmodeler #1 fkonias Guest   Posts: n/a I have a *.dat file with coordinates of 200 points. How can I inport these points to designmodeler without doing that by hand and point by point? Thanks in advance micro11sl likes this.

If you need to make a closed curve use the following syntax in the dat file. 1 1 x1 y1 z1 1 2 x2 y2 z2 1 3 x3 y3 z3 1 0 Regards, Amit

 May 29, 2008, 10:06 Re: coordinates in designmodeler #4 fkonias Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you for your response. I still have a little problem though. The body lines that are created by this way can not be used as base objects for skin/loft or extrude. You see I try to create sketches bases on these coordinates to use the later to create bodies by skin/loft.

But you can do the same by other method which is available only on Ansys 11. Construct a Plane. Insert a Sketch Projection. Select the curve which you want to use as reference. Then construct your desired feature.(Skin/Loft/Extrude) Regards, Amit Roghs
