In ArcGIS for Desktop 10.0, is it possible to create a 3D line feature by drawing a line that connects 3D point features?

Which Version of ArcGIS? - if an older version supporting VBA then there is some code here – Mapperz May 2 '13 at 13:58
The version of ArcGIS is 10.0. – Mhoram May 9 '13 at 20:20

Yes, but I have not tested it.

3D Snapping in ArcGIS, which is available in ArcGlobe and ArcScene, and requires a 3D Analyst license, is described here.

With 3d analyst, and other extensions you can open a globe and start an edit session.
I have not tested 3d snapping but have read that it can be done in that environment.

Does this need to be done in ArcScene? – Mhoram May 11 '13 at 19:22
