XYZ Convert X Y Z to MESH 3D Surface Chart in Excel

Convert XYZ data directly in Excel’s native format for 3D graphing!

If you have tried to take X Y Z data and graph it three dimensionally inside of Microsoft Excel you know that Excel’s graphing capabilities are quite limited. With XYZ Mesh you can convert and copy your data directly into Excel’s native format of MESH, Surface/Wireline Graph or 3D Line/Scatter Plot and even export them directly into Microsoft Excel and CAD.

XYZ Mesh is currently the only software available that converts X Y Z data directly into Microsoft Excel’s native graphing formats! Version 5 has many new features that make creating true 3D graphs like Surface Charts, Wireframes and 3D lines from XYZ data inside Excel much easier!

What is XYZ Mesh used for?

XYZ Mesh was originally created to graph geological land formations when gathering data for drilling rigs. Over the years XYZ Mesh has been adopted into land surveys, atmospheric data graphing, oceanic depth mapping, metrology, sound frequency dissipation and several more fields of study. XYZ Mesh has proven useful due to the ease of use and the flexibility of sharing data. Because of the availability of Microsoft Excel, all of XYZ Mesh’s exports can be viewed by anyone who has a spreadsheet program capable of opening an Excel document. This ensures that your customers, clients and even coworkers can see your progress without needing any additional software, just Excel!

Convert Data Type Options

XYZ Mesh can convert X Y Z into MESH, X Y Z into 3D Scatter Plots, MESH to X Y Z, curve MESH data, curve Lat/Long/Altitude data and can export all converted data directly into Microsoft Excel or your favorite CAD DXF viewer. Microsoft Excel exported documents can have customized information about the data, client and even your business. Easily generate Excel documents with custom Surface Plots, Wireline Plots, Surface Contours, Wireline Contours, 3D Line Graphs, Transparency with Graphs and Wireline Contours with Image Overlay using only XYZ data.

What has changed in version 5?

XYZ Mesh version 5 brings more to the table than any other version released to date. Some of these improvements include:

  • The ability to export data with the trial version.
  • Increased conversion speeds; nearly 10 fold from the previous version.
  • ‘Excel Optimization’ is now available which decreases the number of columns and rows to 250, allowing for every MESH conversion to be graphed inside Microsoft Excel.
  • An ‘Original Outline Overlay’ was added to give the ability to display the original data points over the curved data. This is useful with land surveys and property boundaries.
  • A new ability to have Image Overlaying for Excel Wireline Contour exports.
  • A new progress bar with an ‘Estimated Time Remaining’ to better help determine time needed to convert your data.

Things to Know

  • No software can auto fill XYZ into MESH with 100% accuracy.
  • The above Surface Graphs were generated in Microsoft Excel and BricsCAD v17. XYZ Mesh can generate Wireline MESH Graphs, but not Surface Plots.
  • The more data points given the more accurate MESH conversions will be.
  • XYZ Mesh will not convert data with ‘0’ entries. XYZ Mesh will automatically change these values from “0” to “0.0001”.
  • To generate and produce Microsoft Excel documents with XYZ Mesh you will need to have a supported versions of Microsoft Excel installed on your computer. (2007+)

XYZ Mesh was the first commercial program specifically made to convert XYZ data into Microsoft Excel formatted MESH data.
