convert point cloud into a surface (triangular-faced mesh or CAD model)

I have a file that came from a 3D scanner, but I can’t edit it because it’s a point cloud. How can I turn it into a surface (triangular-faced mesh or CAD model)?
I would prefer if the software to do it would be cheap/free…

Thanks!
Tom

tomchook,

You didn’t mention the file format - check out the link below - for what it does, it is as cheap as it gets. You can also download and try it before you buy it.
