Is there is a way to display vertical images (cross sections) in a 3D view window in QGIS 3? I want to display some cross sections underneath a geological map overlain on the topography.

I can do this in ArcMap & ArcScene, but would like to know if its possible in QGIS. My input data would be a series of images (the vertical profiles) hanging off 3D polylines which are their surface profiles.

Something like this:

    qgis2threejs might be able to do this if it can extrude lines. Not sure if it would support being able to project one of your profiles as a texture onto each extruded line (although that might be doable by hacking the generated javascript). – Steven Kay Sep 11 '18 at 17:28
