How to Import Points To AutoCad

There's no need to load a tricksy AutoLISP routine or pay more than $200 for a plugin, this economical program will do the job for every version of AutoCAD in seconds!

View a list of points graphically

If you have a text point list, or even an Access table of Excel spreadsheet and you want to get the list of points as objects in an AutoCAD drawing just put the points into the main window of Pointor and save the DXF file which results. All versions of AutoCAD can read the DXF file, as indeed can all the versions of mode CAD programs. So the next step is to save the points as a DXF file and then import it into the AutoCAD of your choice:
