I remember there's an excel spreadsheet that has a macro for importing x,y,z coordinates into CATIA as a bunch of points, with the option to fit curves and/or a surface through the points. You copy your coordinates into the CATIA excel file.
Importing Point Cloud data from an excel spreadsheet
I too am interested in importing point data from a spreadsheet into a model. The help system tells me to click on 'import' and shows an icon with some points enclosed in a boundary. I cannot find this icon on my Catia screen. Do I have to have a particular module installed to make this functionality available?
