Just downloaded version 2.92 for Mac. I am unable to find the Point Cloud option in the Add menu. Am I missing something?


Go to Edit-> Preferences -> Interface and check Developer Extras

This will create new tab in left column called Experimental.

In that tab you need to check New Point Cloud Type.

Pointcloud is not a generic object type in the add section. It exist in the geometry node editor section as "Point Distribute".

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for the response. I've seen several videos where people add Point Cloud from the Add menu. In the videos, it shows up right between "Text" and "Volume". Except not when I try it. $\endgroup$ Feb 26 at 22:12
