Creating Borehole trace

It would be nice to have the functionality of creating the path of drilled boreholes. 

Currently doing this using another software. It seems like an easy thing to do with some programming skills.
Usually borehole logs contain :
the location x,y,z
eg. 500E, 500N, 345m

then a seperate table containing the azimuth, dip and distance
45 degrees, -80, 300m
57 degrees, -57, 124m
48 degrees, -52, 90m

The tool "Creating lines based off azimuth and distance" does not work because I only have the starting point, i don't have the coordinates of the next point. The azimuth, dip and distance tells me where the next point is and with some trigonometry, we can determine the elevation.
