I’m a complete novice. It has taken 6 months to move from a lifetimes slavery to M$ on to the refreshing Ubuntu (I am loving it.)
I have all the latest Ubuntu 7.10 and have everything working great. I now need to think about using software in a serious mode and would like to generate a 3D model of a ground survey.
I have some 1,000 points as x,y,z co-ordinates, with a text description, in a csv text file.
I would like to import them into Blender and generate a mesh.
Question 1 Is it possible to generate a surface mesh in Blender by importing data from a csv file?
If it is, I then want to be able to define how the points join up, or to be more precise, I want to edit how some of the points join up if I think the representation is incorrect.
Question 2 Is it possible to edit the joining edges in a mesh from point to point?
Question 3 Is it possible to output the rendered mesh to SketchUp?
