Ansys APDL arrays

Ansys APDL arrays

Ansys APDL arrays

(OP)
Hello guys,

I have this data structured from Grasshopper where I am trying to use this now in ansys apdl. I structured the data so that the keypoint list is in the text file, and array of point index through splines are going to go in another file.
Is there anyone who could help me with the snippet of using this array file and making splines through all of these? structured it so that the (,index) index means which branch,number of the curve actually. That was my logic just to structure the data a bit.
