How to display linetypes for 3D polylines.

A - answer Entities of the type 3DPOLY do not display linetypes nor lineweights. But they store this information (property) - so if you e.g. explode them (EXPLODE), the assigned linetype will by applied for the exploded objects (lines) and after you view/plot the drawing you can UNDO it back to 3D polylines.
