I wanted to generate a polyline in Post-CFD but with the help of 'From File' because other methods didn't work.

I created this question and I am answering it because I found a way and I think this will be helpful to someone.
So just open your geometry in ICEM CFD, check the Surfaces. -> Go to Create/Modify Curve under Geometry tab.-> Select the required surface-> Click on Surface Parameter present at the left bottom. Adjust the parameter to get your required curve->Apply.

Then,in the left tree, right click on Parts-> Create Part->Choose the curve you created->Apply->OK. Delete other parts (curves/surfaces you don't want) and save the geometry as a .tin file.
Then go to the folder where your .tin file is saved, and open the file with Notepad.
In the opened file, you can go scroll down to get the points of your curve, with an extra index.
Copy those datapoints and create a new file in excel and using Text import wizard, delimit at a comma and paste. Remove the last index column.
Now you can save the file as a .csv file and import it in CFD post to get the required polyline.
