Please try our 3D Model Generator website to build maps from your laser data. We support Velodyne scanners now and will expand to other lidar brands. Check out our sample results and a video.

My recent work has been focusing on state estimation and mapping problems combining laser, vision, and inertial sensors. Latest results can be found with Velodyne (Video) and Hokuyo (Video) scanners.
