    As I know (If I wrong just tell me) , it's cannot directly create surface from point cloud as same as CATIA can. The only way I think is , import your point cloud, use it as refernce for create spline in 3D-Sketch, the use loft surface. (Actually, when I do in CATIA , I also use this method). It's a tough method but it's work.
