    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
