ArcScene - Batch base heights?

I am working on a project for a DEM class, in which we digitized an orthophoto of our choice, created a 3d environment in ArcScene,  and floated the scene over a DEM.

My question is: is it possible to do some sort of batch operation to float all the shapefiles over my DEM?  It seems tedious to have to go "properties > base heights > floating on custom surface > select dem" for each shapefile.  I know a bit of Python, but I couldn't find anything in ESRI Help that indicated the syntax needed for base height operations.  Or maybe it would be possible to combine all my shapefiles (similar to a raster mosaic???) so I could then float the combination over my DEM?

Any help would be appreciated, even if it is to say the only way is to manually do each shapefile!
