Question 2-dimensional plots into 3D

Hi all, I'm new to this forum, so first of all thanks for taking the time to read. I hope I have posted this in the right place.

My problem is not exactly simple, but I don;t think it's an enormous stretch to solve for someone skilled in the field. So here goes:

For a personal project I am trying to create a plot of points in 3D space with coordinates (X,Y,Z) using a combination of 2-dimensional Points.

To do this I have three or four (can be either) different 2-dimensional plots each with four points with no depth A(x,y), B(x,y), C(x,y), D(x,y).

Each of the 2D points in each plot, actually represent the same point in a 3D space. E.g. A is the same point in space in plot1 as in plot2. So the distance in 3D space between each of the points A, B, C, D is constant.

The problem is: How can I determine the (X,Y,Z) values for each of the points A, B, C and D when all I have is:

Plot 1: A1(x,y), B1(x,y), C1(x,y), D1(x,y)?
Plot 2: A2(x,y), B2(x,y), C2(x,y), D2(x,y)?
Plot 3: A3(x,y), B3(x,y), C3(x,y), D3(x,y)?
Plot 4: A4(x,y), B4(x,y), C4(x,y), D4(x,y)?

I imagine that I need some sort of combination between trigonometry and matrix calculation, but have no idea where to start. Any help or direction you can give here would be appreciated! Thanks!
