Unless I minsunderstand the poster's question or the functionality of IMSweb's imsExtrudeGraphics, I don't think the latter answer's the former... I thought imsExtrudeGraphics takes a single 2D graphics and places it in a 3D picture or else extrudes it into 3D. What the poster asked was how to take a whole (finite) series of 2D plots and stack them up. Is it obvious how to use imsExtrudeGraphics to accomplish that?
