How can i import a Text file with x, y & z co-ordinates in AutoCAD?
I have a Text document in which i have x,y & z co-ordinates. How can i import it in AutoCAD for plotting Lines?
It is possible to automate the input of xyz coordinates directly in Autocad without installing special plugins (10.000 points (xyz) in less than 5 minutes).
You can use an XLS-file to generate the automated input of points.
Also polarcoordinates are possible.
See my example on GrabCAD - Geometric survey
A lisp routine can be generated to read in your text file line by line, if you upload the text file I will make an attempt for you. I will need to know if you want points generated or a line from co-ordinate to co-ordinate. If it is a short file you may just want to cut and paste it on the command line with a few edits to the text file.
You can use the ASCPOINT free utility or you can insert TXT or RTF text files into your drawing by either importing the text or dragging a file icon from Windows Explorer. Imported text files are limited to 256 KB and must have a file extension of .txt or .rtf.
