QCAD is a 2D CAD package and as such not meant to handle 3D data.

Having said that, you should be able to create and store at least basic entities (lines, arcs) in 3D in the DXF or DWG format. QCAD/CAM uses this functionality to store 3D toolpaths.

To experiment with 3D data, you can enable Z coordinates in the property editor under:
Edit > Application Preferences > Widgets > Property Editor > Display Z coordinates

L'idea e quella di provare a realizzare, tempo e voglia permettendo, un qualcosa che da delle proiezioni ortogonali permetta di salvare/ convertire i dati del disegno in un formato 3D apribile da altri cad 3D/modellatori
Stavo valutando anche possibilitá con script esterni in Python e/o Php:
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dxfwrite
https://github.com/digitalfotografen/DXFwriter
e/o salvado in formato
OpenSCAD

The idea is to try to accomplish, by allowing time and will, something that from orthogonal projections allows you to save / convert drawing data into a 3D format that can be opened by other CAD 3D/modelers
I was also evaluating potential with external scripts in Python and / or Php:
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dxfwrite
https://github.com/digitalfotografen/DXFwriter
And/or save it in format
