To make 3D model with point cloud

Hello guys, I'm trying to reconstruct a 3D model from a point cloud data which is a text file. when I try to open it with mesh prep wizard it creates a bunch of little pieces rather than creating complete geometry by joining all the points.


I tried the regular method, first enabling "Scan to 3D" add-in later using the "Mesh prep wizard" command. But I'm unable to get the actual geometry.


Is there a special procedure to follow?


Below is the snapshot of the point cloud, Geometry obtained, and Geometry supposed to get (approximate)


Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance
