I have a point cloud imported from an .e57 file that is actually 7 point cloud objects.  They overlay each other and together describe the building very well.  I've trimmed away excess points and now I'm wondering if it's possible to turn all the points into a single point cloud object?

That is as far as I know not possible within Vectorworks itself as you cannot ungroup or merge them at the moment. You would need to get a point cloud editor to import the data in ther, clean it up as desired and then re-export it for importing into VW.

The multi-platform open source app CloudCompare can align & combine multiple point cloud files prior to importing them into Vw.
