Help with DXF import
show user profile  museum dave
Hello - fairly new to max and have got a problem with importing a dxf file. I have a dxf file that has been supplied by a third party (I have no access to CAD). It contains points as xyz coordinates. When I import the file - no problem - it brings in all of the points and I can see them in the display windows, select them etc. However, what I want to be able to is to fit a terrainover the points or map/wrap a plane onto the points to create a surface. I do, however, seem to be totally unable to find a way to do this or modify the points to turn them into some other form - such as a mesh etc - when selected they are described as helpers.

Any help appreciated
