Hi,

I've got an LAS file that works fine in ArcGIS Pro, but in ArcMap 10.4 (with 3D Analyst extension enabled) I cannot even see the dataset in Catalog to add it as a layer.  Neither ArcMap nor ArcScene can see this LAS file.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong??

Thanks,

I dont think older version of ArcMap are capable of reading LAS files directly. Use your LAS files and create a LAS Dataset. Then you should be able to view the points, tile boundaries, ect.
