    Creating Parts From Data Points - Not Point Cloud

    Matthieu Chardon

      Hello Guys,

       

      I have a 100x7 matrix of data representing 100 cylinders such that each row is [x1,y1,z1,x2,y2,z2,R].  The first 6 entries are the start point and the end point of the center of the cylinder and R is the radius.  I was wondering if I could create a for loop in which I could use solidworks' "point, circle and extrude" functions to create these 100 cylinders.

       

      To my defence, I did create a point cloud for all these cylinders and imported them into solidworks usind ScanTo3D.  This is however really combersome in post processing.

       

      Hopefully there is an easy solution for this

       

      Sincerely,

       

      Matt
