Split a Point Feature Class by Attribute Using Model Builder

I am trying to split point data into separate layers based the attributes of a column. I have around 70,000 points that need to be split into roughly 70 distinct point layers, I carried out this task manually for each layer but I am wondering can this been achieved using model builder ?  I cannot find any examples of this and following a trail and error approach has also proved unsuccessful. 

I essentially want to iterate through my points layer and split this into separate layers based on the cell contents of a column in the attribute table .

I am sure this is straightforward but I cannot get it to work. 

Any help would be most appreciated.

Many thanks

Examples of using iterators in ModelBuilder—Tools | ArcGIS Desktop 

with replacing the Iterate workspace example Add Field with the above tool, should be a good example

There is also an iterworkspaces example if you have multiple gdbs with multiple featureclasses

Also a interate folders

Iterate Feature Selection connected to Copy Features would do this. This iterator will even iterate by unique combinations multiple "group by" fields!
