Convert and display 2D piping to 3D piping

We have a task of converting a lift station drawing from 2D to 3D, and the end product must be displayed in ArcGIS Pro.  Currently the 2D data is in a geodatabase, just points, lines, and polygons, created in ArcMap.  We have elevations in the attribute tables for horizontal pipes, fittings, valves, etc.  We do not have any vertical pipes drawn in since we can't show this in a 2D environment.


So my questions are; what is the best way to draw in the vertical pipes, and what is the best way to convert this to the 3D world?


We need to maintain the attributes of everything (pipe material, diameter, type of valve, etc), and everything will be shown under ground level.


All suggestions are appreciated.  We have access to 3D Analyst, AutoCAD Civil 3D and MEP.
