LiDAR .LAS files to solid, 3D models?

I am beginning some work with LiDAR sensors (mounted on small unmanned aircraft systems), and would like to know if there is a way to transform LAS data to a solid, 3D model that can be used for object-based image classification? Specifically, I am looking at LiDAR sensors for vegetation mapping and would like to be able to classify vegetation within the 3D model. Is there a way to get to this point using ArcGIS Pro? I've used ArcGIS Pro for remote sensing projects, so I'm familiar with the program. Do I need to convert the LAS file to multipoints, and then krig them into a 3D model?

 

Any advice would help, thanks!
