Also, how do you mean: plotting lines as cylinders? You mean you want to draw a cylinder of radius r along a line?

How can I do that?

I dont know how to format the external data and how I have to do the command in mathematica.

list = Partition[Import["Sites/IWS/testFile.txt", "Table"], 2]

Graphics3D[Cylinder

- ]

but in that way I am not able to change the cylinder-radius. How can I add this parameter in my list?

Code:

```
Cylinder[{{Subscript[x, 1],Subscript[y, 1],Subscript[z, \
1]},{Subscript[x, 2],Subscript[y, 2],Subscript[z, 2]}},r]
represents a cylinder of radius r around the line from (Subscript[x, \
1],Subscript[y, 1],Subscript[z, 1]) to (Subscript[x, 2],Subscript[y, \
2],Subscript[z, 2]).
```

So you could simply use that command.

How you would convert to that from your raw data depends on the version of Mathematica (I suspect you are using 6.0+) and the precise format of the text file.
