Hi,

I need to create about 100 off points in a sketch.

I have the x and Y co-ordinates in a excel spread sheet.  Is there any simple way to create the points other than manually entering thru precise input.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Create a new 2D sketch.

Go to Insert Points

Select XLS with XY coordinates

Go to Import Options to create automatically a a Line or Spline through points (if needed).
