Geoprocessing multiple points individually within a feature class

Hi,

I have developed a geoprocessing model in Model Builder to calculate dam lake areas based on the location of the dam (a single point) but it can only processes one point at a time, thus I have to run each dam location individually.

I would like to be able to run the model for multiple locations. Essentially running the model for each row within a feature class of points. I don???t think they can be all run at the same time as there needs to be individual output files and stats for each dam location.

I have done a bit of research and it seems Cursors might make this possible? I understand this would involve exporting the model to python script then maybe adding the Cursors in?

I am new to Python so any help on this would be great!!!!
Even a simplified example, perhaps running just buffer on each point in a feature class row by row

Cheers
