I think the DXF and the STL files have the mesh, the STL even with
normals. In any case, the point cloud is very regular. It's basically
a regular X/Y grid, plus the altitude at which the scanner hit the
object. The only complication is that points where it didn't hit
anything are omitted.

Perfect ! I'll keep on scanning for now in case you run into any
snags, but you'll probably have much better results. Are there any
parts where you'd expect difficulties with your scanner ?
