Getting a list of points into AutoCAD

This program creates drawings from lists of points which can be read by AutoCAD. Not only do you get to visually examine (and zoom and pan) the list of points, but they can also be saved as a DXF file (which is a native AutoCAD format) for later reading by the CAD. The diagram below shows how easy it is:

List of points to AutoCAD file

Point data is often stored as a series of x, y and z coordinates. These text files may also contain other information about the points such as point number and point descriptions. Some formats use the Northing, Easting, Elevation format.

Pointor creates points (and connecting lines too if you want). You can set different layers for points, lines and any accompanying text.

.DXF output format for a list of points

As you can see from above the formats supported are:

  • Pure numbers (X, Y, Z).
  • Point Number, Northing Easting Elevation and Description.
  • Point Number, Easting Northing Elevation and Description.
  • Point code, X, Y
  • Point code, Y, X
  • UPT
  • X Y Description
  • X Y Z Description
