How to to convert a cloud of points into a dxf file.

If you have a list of two or three dimensional points, maybe from a text file or an Excel speadsheet etc, sometimes you want to visualize and/or convert this list to a DXF file.

(There is also LidarToDxf which may be more applicable to converting from point clouds to DXF clouds.)

Sometimes even a short list of points are hard to analyse unless you can quickly plot their positions:

With Pointor you can simply bring in the text list and immediately see them in all their graphical glory:

As you can see, the visual data is much easier to understand than a three columns of data. You can zoom in with the mouse wheel or magnifying glass icon:

Of course you can save the list of points as a DXF.
