Modelling point clouds using mesh

I need to make a 3D grid out of about 500,000 3D points, which has been produced by Laser Scanner measurement from earth surface.

  1. is it possible to import so many points into Blender?
  2. Is it possible to make a 3D mesh out of it in Blender?
  3. Is it possible to calculate the volume difference between two successive 3D mesh model in Blender?
    That would be a great help to me, if some body can guide me.


Check out these threads, if it can be done, I believe it will require a script.

Best of Luck!
