This paper continues the study of 3D visibility representations of complete graphs where vertices are represented by equal convex polygons lying in planes parallel to the xy-plane. Edges correspond to the z-parallel visibility among these polygons. We give several bounds on the size of the largest complete graph that has a 3D visibility representation with particular properties. Namely we improve the best known lower bound for representations by regular n-gons from to n+1 and the upper bound from to .
