Good day wondering if someone can point me to a couple exampls how I can take a data set with an x,y,z value for the start of a line and x,y,z value for the end of line and plot multiple lines with various start and end points similar to the below oinly straight lines. Thanks

The function to plot them is plot3.
Try this:
startPts = rand(5,3)*10; % Columns: [x(:) y(:) z(:)]
endPts = rand(5,3)*10+50; % Columns: [x(:) y(:) z(:)]
figure
plot3([startPts(:,1) endPts(:,1)]', [startPts(:,2) endPts(:,2)]', [startPts(:,3) endPts(:,3)]')
grid
view(-60,30)
That is simply a demonstration.
