Hi VIctor You can do this in Mathematica certainly. There is a list of commands for you to looking for in Mathematica Helps (F1): 1- Graphics3D[] To do graphics in an more primitive way, you will need the Line option 2- ListPointPlot3D More easy way to plot points, but not joined 3- Manipulate Create dynamic content 4- Import["yourfile.xlsx"] To import your excel I wish it could help you Best Regards Murta
