Dear Mohamed1298,


Thank you for reaching out. 


PVsyst supports several 3D file formats, namely *.DAE; *.3DS; *.H2P; *.PVC.

You can find information about these files in our online help:

For topography it is also possible to import into PVsyst a *.CSV file as described here: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?csv_ground_data.htm

Finally you can download the topography online and import it using this step by step guide:



For more interactive content about this topic you will find an explanatory video on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/is44ZnQtOx0


Regarding filling the 3D scene with tables, you can have a look at our zone tool here: https://www.pvsyst.com/help/index.html?zones_of_tables.htm


I hope this helps.
