3D models (or rather their geometry) saved as polygon files (.ply) can be usally exported to other 3D models or geometry files, including .pts files. This can be done for example in programs like Meshlab, which you can download for free from SourceForge.

Convert from ply file
to pts file
The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned ply to pts. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
Multiplatform software - convert ply to pts on any platform
MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.
