Help with connecting vertexes to faces

hi blender pros

i need some help from you guys.
i have a model with a lot of vertexes, and I want to connect them to faces.

i know how to do that by hand, step by step: select the 3 vertexes and press f to generate a face.
but the problem is, I do have tausends of vertexes to connect to faces.

is there any automatisation process to connect the 3 closest vertexes together??

Otherwise i will spend hours and hours doing that.

I will attach a screenshot for you, so it is more clear what i mean.
On the to i started do do it vertex by vertex:

Thanks for any help to save some time!!

Thank you Richard, I just tried that, but my blender always crashes when trying to “skin” it with the point cloud addon. so if anyone knows a different way to get those bloody vertexes into faces…
