If I understand you correctly, you have several sets of points, want 
to assign each set to a plane in space, and draw polygons between 
neighboring points. Have you looked at ListSurfacePlot3D[] in the 
standard packages? You may have to massage your data sets a little to 
obtain the correct format for that function.

If that's not quite it, I suggest checking TMJ and several books on 
Mathematica graphics. Tom Wickham-Jones' book is likely to have 
something useful, and Roman Maeder published an article in TMJ that 
contains code to create polygons from tables of points.
