comment Error creating polygons with ArcPy
You have an example, straight from the ArcGIS Help: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//… Why can't you just run that code (switching out your output shapefile path if desired)? Your modification to the example broke it, so just go back to the original example. I fail to see what is difficult about that.

Your current code can be "fixed" by just using the original example. I am not sure what else you need. Please edit your question to clarify, and it will likely be reopened.

comment How do i create a simple square polygon from Python through arcpy?
To Luke and others, this question is just a restatement of their previous question, Error creating polygons with ArcPy. The earlier question should be reopened after the user has made an effort to try something else based on the discussion in the comments, or clarify what they're stuck on.

comment Error creating polygons with ArcPy
The original example shows you how, albeit it is using some more advanced syntax to do it in fewer lines. The Python tutorial has sections on list comprehensions and argument unpacking which should explain the details.

What do you expect to accomplish with this line: features.append[0:6] as the error message is telling you that what you're trying to do doesn't make sense.

comment What are the advantages of interpolation vs raster from point elevations?
I am not clear on what two things you are comparing, but they both sound like interpolation to me.

It's recommended that you edit your question to add those kinds of details rather than expound in the comments.

comment Is it possible to render a large number of shapefiles to a pdf document using Python?
Can you give us a better idea of the number of shapefiles, number of features in each shapefile, and (on average) the number of vertices per feature? It sounds like you are just asking way too much of the PDF format.

comment Z-value missing in attribute table of shapefile from ASCII 3D to Feature Class?
Multipoint is an aggregate geometry type, in which many thousands of vertices (points) are stored per row (multipoint). So it will not be possible to extract each Z value without first converting to Point.

comment Z-value missing in attribute table of shapefile from ASCII 3D to Feature Class?
Felix is correct, with Multipoint, the Z and M values are stored per-vertex, of which there may be thousands per multipoint feature, which is an aggregate geometry type. If you want to have Z values in the attribute table, use Point, not Multipoint, and then use Dan's answer to add the Z values to the table.
