I have a handful of about 250 alignment points in a txt file that I need to load into SW2013 standard. There used to be a macro that would work with earlier versions of SW but i'm having trouble getting it to work with 2013. I know premium has a built in funtion for points but I only need to read points in on occasion - first time this year.

I've tried importing through dxf but SW flattens the points to a plane. I can generat a 3d spline curve with the pointdata but I'm having trouble extracting the point locations along the curve. Are there any simple solutions without having buy the premium upgrade?
