    Create a curve from a set of points derived in excel

    Jason Hogue

      I have a simple excel spread sheet that determines a basic trajectory of a particle.  This spread sheet generates a set of points (X & Y) that define the distance of a particle over a set of time intervals, and therefore a curved trajectory.

      I would like to use these points in Solidworks to define a curve and then a simple extrusion.

      I thought I may be able to recreate this spreadsheet in SW and assign the specific X & Y points generated in the spreadsheet to X & Y dimensions for a set of points in a sketch (defining the curve), but so far no luck.

      Does anyone have any idea how/if this can be done.

       

      Thanks,
