Basic Instructions For Points In Space

I need just basic instructions to construct a 3-d model of mere points in space and rotate those points in any directions I need. I do have x, y, z components of all the points. The points may have 2-d flat shapes of many orientations. The orientations should change as directed by the user.

Thank you very much.

Hi John,

If you have the [x, y, z] coordinates of all your points, you can put them in a plain text file like this:

x1 y1 z1
x2 y2 z1
x3 y3 z3
zn yn yn

Then save it as a *.asc file (i.e. points.asc), and upload it, and it should work fine on Sketchfab.
