Imports one or more polycurves into the cross-section of a tunnel. If the cross-section of the tunnel is not empty, the imported segments are added to the end of the segment list. If the file contains more than one polycurve, the one with the largest bounding box is imported as the cross-section and the others as sub-sections. The imported polycurves can only contain line and arc segments, and they should be positioned on the XY-plane.
