Importing CSV data to X-particles

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am new to the C4D community and wanted to ask for some help...


I am wanting to import CSV data into the xpDataImporter from X-particles plugin to create particle visualisations. I have read the instructions on how to do this:

 http://docs.x-particles.net/html/dataimportexport.php  but I have tried several times and it doesn't work. My end goal is also to be able to convert this data into a geometry object for 3D printing through X-particles, can anyone help with this? 


Thank you

Hi and :welcome: to the Cafe


Usually X particles questions are more quickly addressed on their support forum, however they do answer here also but you will probably have to wait for a working day...

I am not familiar with them, but first thing that pops to mind is to ensure that your csv file is using formal definition as described by their documentation? Do you have a proper header in the file?

Hi There


Your best option for X-Particles or Cycles4D help and support is the official support forum https://community.insydium.online/ or our Discord Channel. 


RE this you can see all the Data is loaded if you add a Field Map but there is a lot of data and you have to define what you want it to do to the particles EG control position or scale etc.
