A method is presented to construct computer-generated holograms from objects composed of line segments. In reconstruction, lines of finite lengths are displayed in three dimensions. These lines are analytically deduced from cylindrical and conical waves. It is possible to reconstruct lines of arbitrary orientation (inclined up to 85° to the hologram plane).
