Do you need to **import** a series of **XLS coordinates points** into your drawing, and draw them as a series of POINTs, LINE segments, or 2D or 3D POLYLINEs?

With **LitioLAB** paste XLS coordinate data into AutoCAD, GStarCAD or ZwCAD as **drawing entities**.

- For 3D surface examples and a video check below.
- For a 2D- and 3D-POLYLINE examples and a video check below.

**Paste XLS to Points:** This tool creates a 2D or 3D curve [as: a polyline, a set of points, or a set of line segments], or a 3D surface [as: a set of points, or a 3D mesh], when you paste a set of XLS [o simmilar] coordinates.

First choose the **type of data** [point coordinates] to enter [either **2D** points - curve; **3D** points - curve; or **3D** points - surface].

Then, **copy** your XLS data [set of 2 or 3 columns], all the required range, and **paste** the data in your CAD’s command line. The data will be automatically catched as it got pasted.

The **resulting** 2D o 3D **curve**, or 3D **surface** will be drawn.

For these examples, I picked the headform definition to test helmets as per **ISO 16073** standard.

The standard defines a set of **3D coordinates** as a function of an angle and a height. It is easy to copy and paste these data into an XLS file and
do some XLS calculations to get the set of **X Y Z coordinates** of the **headform definition**.

So, I got these sets of points for three Headforms. For easier input, I have copied the data into a TEXT file, every point coordinate after the other.

So, for the first example I run LitioLAB and input the data belonging to the first set: **the headform D**.

The same for the next one, which is the **headform G**.

And finally, the same for the **headform K**.

These graphs can be used for CNC machining or 3D printing.

For these examples, I picked the **coordinate data** for several **airfoils**.

I just copy the coordinate data from this PDF and paste them into a TEXT file. And I start picking and **copying** the first **set of data**.

Then, I start **LitioLAB** and I choose the **data import tool**.
I select the **2D coordinate option**.
And I **paste** the data I have already copied, to get a **2D polyline** with an airfoil shape.
I **repeat** the process for the other 3 sets of data.

Finally, I turn into the **3D** space to make an example of a **3D Polyline**.
I pick a series of 3D point coordinates and I copy it.
Then, I start LitioLAB and I pick the **data import tool**. I chose the **3D option** and I **paste** the set of data I have copied before, to get a **3D Polyline**.
