I am running Rhino 4.0 on a computer using Windows 7 and have been doing so for the last year. I have the pointools plug-in for Rhino which I have been using to draw up a mill that I laser scanned last month. However, as of last week my sampled pointclouds (.pod files) are no longer showing up in Rhino. The bounding box is visible but no points are. Anyone else having this issue or know how to fix it?
Check in Options - Appearance - Advanced Settings - [Wireframe] - Objects - Points, and make sure your pointCloud object settings Size is not set to zero.

Thanks, but my pointcloud object settings size is set to 2
Are point objects set to be displayed in the display mode you're using or are they suppressed?
I have not set anything to suppress my point objects. I have clicked the "show pointclouds" tool. How do I check if my point objects are set to suppressed?
Please see image
Ah, I do not have the options for "show points" or "show pointclouds." Are you running rhino 4.0 or have you got 5.0? I only have 4.0, should I still have this option? I have been loading pointclouds as .pod files for over a year and it has only recently stopped working without me changing any settings.
Sorry. I assumed V5 even though your message clearly says V4.
Do all files do this or just his one?
I'm assuming they are not 'Hidden" or a long way from the coordinate origin?
