Points Import for SolidWorks is a Point file import add-in for SolidWorks. This add-in gives SolidWorks the ability to import point coordinate data from text Point files.
Points Import for SolidWorks reads the coordinate data stored in Point files and imports it into SolidWorks. A Point file is essentially a text file containing the x, y and z coordinate data of a point on each line. Points Import for SolidWorks reads this coordinate data and creates point objects for each points in a SolidWorks document. The points can be imported as a 3D Sketch in a SolidWorks part or assembly document or a 2D Sketch in a drawing document. The points can also be joined by lines or a spline. This is helpful when the points in the point file are stored in a particular order such as a path of motion of an object, points on the boundary of an object or hole in an object, etc.
Points Import for SolidWorks is very easy to use as it adds new commands to SolidWorks. It also adds a submenu to the SolidWorks menu called "PointsImport".

The Points File Format
A Point file format is basically a text file containing the x, y and z coordinates of a point on each line. Usually the coordinates are stored in the XYZ order. However, points are sometimes stored in the YXZ order. This is common in survey data where the YXZ order is referred to Northing, Easting and Elevation. Sometimes each point in the point file has a point number and/or description.
