I open *.pts in CloudCompare and save it as *.ply.

How to right to reconstruct points to mesh? in blender or in meshlab?

I found the best way!
Open .pts file in CloudCompare (why pts don’t opens in Meshlab?) and save it to .ply.
Open .ply in Meshlab and folow this tutorial
Save mesh to .ply again and open it in blender.
That’s it)))
