Solar balloon / How to go from .txt to drawing

edited July 2014 in Technique
Hi Everyone!
I'm working in a solar balloon project, my solar balloon shape will be a semi sphere on top and a cone in the boton.
So after some investigation, I made an excel spreadsheet with all the calculus needed to calculate the gore shape (I can share that if you are interested). So now I have my gore shape as a set of X,Y points in a text file.
Does anybody know a software I can use to import this .txt file with coordinates and create a drawing (a visio digram, or a pdf) that I can print?
BTW, I think this can be done with autocad, but I don't have it and I don't know how to manage CAD.
Thanks in advance and regards
