If the package you want to load is called "ConvexHull.m" (no "3D" in the 
name) then you must use the exact name of the file without its 
extension. Any of the following expressions should work:

     << ConvexHull`
     << "ConvexHull`"

If the file ConvexHull.m is located in this directory, you should not to 
have to load it manually since it must be already there (it is 
automatically loaded whenever Mathematica starts).
