Import CSV Plugin
Autodesk® Alias® Plugin to import 3D Points in a CSV (Comma Separated Value) file.
CMM (coordinate measuring machines) are used in many automotive studios, to make cross-section data of physical models. These are stored as raw x,y,z values and can be exported as a CSV file.
Currently, there is no easy method to transfer such data into Alias. Although Alias can import CSV file as a point cloud, it is not very easy to visualize sparse data. The plug-in will import the points and connect them using polylines. By choosing an angle , the resulting polylines can be broken at the retract steps or sudden change in curvature.
