I think you want to use ScatterPlot3D which is defined in the standard package Graphics`Graphics3D` and documented in the Guide to Standard Packages. In[1]:= <<Graphics`Graphics3D` In[2]:= data = Table[ {t Cos[t], t Sin[t], t}, {t,0,4Pi,Pi/20}]; In[3]:= ScatterPlot3D[ data, PlotJoined -> True ] Out[3]= -Graphics3D- Tom Wickham-Jones WRI
