Hello I am currently searching for any information on how to import and view 3d point cloud data into a scene. I have tried seen similar facilities in other engines through addons etc. Is this sort of functionality available and are there any coding examples or starting points for a new user i.e. tutorials that I can be pointed towards.

Can be used to render point cloud.

No .PLY Importer for godot as far as I know. (You can always implement one if you know how, or use GDNative to bind some existing C/C++ library ).

Edit:
Changed link to english doc.

Many thanks for the information. I fear it may be out of my league for now, but I shall definitely revisit this at some stage
