Hi Kyaw,
The only ways I can think of are:

- create a VRML file describing a surface with those points, read
into Chimera
- write a Python script to be opened in Chimera that reads in the
numbers and generates a Chimera surface model

However, I do not know the details about how to do either of these
things. Others, feel free to chime in!
