how do you expect to build a solid form {x_coord, 
y_coord, z_min, z_max} ??
You can use the TriangularSurfacePlot[] function 
form the DiscreteMath`ComputationalGeometry`
package and draw the surface from the {x,y,zmin} 
and {x,y,zmax} values
and compute the convex hull of the {x,y} pairs to 
construct the
surfaces that close the top and bottom surface.

| Hi!
| I would like to build a 3D graphics from a list 
of data. Each element
| from the list has 4 components: {x_coord, 
y_coord, z_min, z_max}, i.e.,
| something like to vertical lines for each point 
in the x-y plane.
| Is there any simple way to graphically draw the 
corresponding solid?
| Thanks.
