Jose, A lot depends on what your data and surface actually are! Is your data on a rectangular xy grid? is zmax always greater than zmin? i.e., do the top and bottom sufaces ever intersect? You could always plot a series of vertical lines and SpinShow the result to get an idea of the surface. However it would be nicer if you could get an interpolating function for the bottom and top and actually plot surfaces. Maybe you could post a set of data as a Mathematica list structure?

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. Jose
