Once you have the data in the program you can "join the dots", zoom and pan around it, and then save it as a DXF file. DXF files can be read by all popular CAD programs.

A testimonial:

"I found out about the program from a forum site dealing with Autocad issues. It has been very difficult to find a program that will import a text file as 3D points and to display the point numbers and codes with XYZ coordinates. The Pointor program is just what I was looking for and it is very easy to use. If I have any suggestions I will let you know but for the time being I am very happy with it."

From a happy customer: "I was working on a surveying class project and I needed to input 400 points. And I did not want to do it one at a time. I am new to AutoCAD but I was just about able to stumble through the process. With Pointor though, it was a doddle!. Thank you."
