Import XYZ points to 3D sketch?

Hello,

 

I have many text files, each containing XYZ points. I need help creating a script that imports each text file as a 3D sketch with lines connecting the points.

 

I was able to use the code from this thread to import the points as curves, but based on the way I need to generate lofted surfaces, I need to import each text file as a 3D sketch. I was able to find this thread, with code that lets you convert cell values from Excel to a 3D sketch, but I need to be able to do this without going through Excel and instead, with a text file.

 

If not, would anyone know how to convert every imported curve into individual 3D sketches (one for each curve?) I would prefer not to do it this way as it means another step to get the sketches.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!
