How can I create a surface in Voxler from my XYZ data file?

To create a surface from an XYZ data file, follow these steps:
  1. Create a column of 0's in the data file.
  2. Open Voxler and go to File | Import.
  3. Select the data file and click Open.
  4. In the Network Manager, click the data source module.
  5. In the Property Manager, select the General tab and set the apporiate columns under Worksheet Columns (setting the columns of 0's for Z coordinates).
  6. Right click over the data source module in the Network Manager and choose Computational | Gridder to create a Gridder module.
  7. Select the Gridder module.  In the Properties Manager, set any settings you wish and click Begin Gridding.
  8. Once the gridding is complete, right click over the Gridder module and choose Graphics Output | HeightField.

 

Alternatively, if you own Surfer you can grid the XYZ data in Surfer (Grid | Data), load the GRD file into Voxler (File | Import), and attach a HeightField module directly to the GRD file.
