Three dimensional analysis in interior building networks

My problem is that I need to build a network between features between all the floors of a building. And if possible be able to do a network analysis in a 3D environment such as ArcScene.

I want to know if I can do 3D routing analysis in ArcScene 10? Do I need to build a geometric network or a network dataset? When I try to do routing analysis in ArcMap on a network dataset, I find that an error occurs at the vertical lines.

My questions are thus: Is it possible to do 3D analysis in ArcScene? Why does the vertical lines create errors? And finally, can I achieve my goal with a network dataset?
