3D Polygons or Multipatchs

I am writing to see if anybody knows how to convert  (if possible) a set of 3D point features (lat, lon, elevation) into a 3D polygon or multipatch.  I would like to use these points to create a minimum area boundary around the complete set of points I have.  I noticed that in the mulitipatch white paper you can create and extrude between two tins to create a complete multipatch although I am not still learning python and not sure how to actually go about doing this.  If anybody has and tips or pointers, please let me know.

Thank you all,
