I’m trying to import a .txt file in Rhino, containing some coordinates from a survey.
I’m modifying the .txt file to set the points in x,y,z.
Additionally, I would like to put the description, the surveyor has attached to that specific point.
Can anyone tell me what is the correct “order of things” is, to attach the description as the point id/object name, so that I can annotate it and have the description displayed in the viewport?
Is there any easy way to do this? Maybe there is a plugin that I cannot find?!
I need to see the description in the viewport next to each point.
I’m guessing that I can add the description in one column and rhino will add it as the name of that point?!
x,y,z,(description) / x,y,z,point_name
I understand that I can do this with Grasshopper.
But I need to pass it along to someone with very little knowledge of Rhino and explain it as simple as possible to them the core process of the order of things so that they can work and edit the .txt document and just import it in Rhino.
In Civil, when importing, I can pick my custom point file formats and set what each column represents in the text file.
