Hi Kassie,

The built-in function *ListSurfacePlot3D* [1], from the standard package 
_Graphics`Graphics3D`_, will do what your want. For instance,

In[1]:=
<< "Graphics`Graphics3D`"
data = {{{0.1, 0.2, 0}, {1.2, 0.4, 0}, {2.2, 0.1, 1},
      {2.8, 0.3, 1}, {4.1, 0., 0}},
     {{0., 2.3, 1}, {1.1, 1.7, 0}, {1.9, 2.5, 1},
      {3.1, 2.1, 1}, {3.8, 1.9, 1}},
     {{0.2, 3.6, 2}, {0.8, 3.9, 1}, {2.1, 4.3, 2},
      {3., 4., 2}, {4.2, 3.8, 1}}, {{0.1, 6.1, 2},
      {1.2, 5.7, 1}, {2., 5.8, 2}, {2.9, 6.2, 2},
      {4.1, 5.9, 2}}};
ListSurfacePlot3D[data, Axes -> True];

Best regards,
Jean-Marc
