Then is it possible to induce the parameter of the least time-taking course between two points in the three dimension?

In principle yes, in fact the cycloid solution applies to a 3D curve when the two points lie in a plane that also contains the gravitational force vector. Since such plane always exists for any given pair of points, the trajectory will always be a cycloid.Then is it possible to induce the parameter of the least time-taking course between two points in the three dimension?
