3D Cluster Detection

I have a list of Real 3D points, each coordinate having a value
between 0 and 2 Pi. Within this list there are several 
"clusters" of points, i.e. the coordinates agree to several
decimal places. Each cluster is quite distinct from the other,
for example when I view the points with
I see 4 points, despite the fact that there are hundreds in
the list.

Can anybody suggest a means of automatically detecting the
means or modes of these clusters? 

Thanks in advance,
