Import xyz to BabaCAD
« on: August 30, 2015, 11:05:53 pm »

I have a *.txt file with a list of coordinates (x,y), each one associated with a depth (z). How can I import this file into BabaCAD to see all the points I'm working with?

In AutoCAD I use the script command.

There is a command IMPTXT to import coordinates from .txt file in BabaCAD. BabaCAD is still 2D only (3D version is on the way) and there is no Z coordinate. Depth can be imported only as labels, so .txt file has to looks like (Depth first, then X and Y):

800.0   10.0  20.0
790.0   15.0  22.0

After IMPTXT you will get 2D points (10,20) and (15,22) labeled with 800 and 790.
(All row values in .txt file have to be delimited by TAB).
