I recently purchased the Pro version of NL2, and with that came the spline exporter. However, I have yet to find a tutorial anywhere on how to import the CSV into SketchUp or Blender. If anyone could help me with this or link me to a tutorial, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

Sketchup requires an extension to do this - I think this one is the one you want: https://extensions.sketchup.com/sv/cont ... t-gadget-2

Make sure your data is set out in the csv in the following way and delete the unneeded columns

I then used the following settings

Then use the "create linework" tool in point gadget to get what you need.

You might need to "zoom extents" to ensure the zoom isn't super far away.

Hopefully that helps.

Since all the values are in one column, how would you separate the needed values? i know that the only ones needed are Pos(XYZ), however i would like to know how to tell which value is which. My CSV Looks like this

Open up excel, choose data from the ribbon then chose import from text file

Your data should now be organised by column, all you need to do is save this file as a .csv and it should work.
