Dear Murray,

sorry! That was my mistake. The correct command is imsToGraphics3D. 

Then you can do the following:

Needs["Imtek`Graphics3D`"]

c1 = Circle[{1, 2}, 1.2];

Show[
  imsToGraphics3D[ Graphics[ {c1 } ], # ] & /@ Range[ 0, 2, 0.2 ], 
  AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> All, Boxed -> False]

Sorry again. 

However, you can also use imsExtrudeGraphics. imsExtrudeGraphics[ graphic, 
{ zMin, zMax } ] extrudes a graphics object from zMin to zMax. 

Show[ Graphics3D[ 
    Thread[ imsExtrudeGraphics[ 
        Circle[{1, 2}, #] & /@ Range[ 1, 2, 0.1 ], { # - 0.1, # + 0.1 } & 
/@ 
          Range[ 1, 2, 0.1 ] ] ] ], Boxed -> False ]

Does this help? Maybe I have not really understood the question ;-)

Oliver
