hi i am using maple 9.5, and am trying to animate some curves in 3 -D.
I started with
s:=spacecurve([cos(t),sin(t),t],t=0..Pi);
animatecurve(s,t=0..2*Pi,frames=50);

I get a 2 d plot that does nothing, is there any way to get a 3d
animated curve drwing in maple.

See the help file for animatecurve:

plots[animatecurve] - create an animation of the drawing of 2d plots

So it's not surprising that this doesn't create a 3d animation.
Moreover, your syntax is completely wrong for animatecurve: the first
argument is supposed to be a function to be plotted, not a plot command.
I think what you have in mind is

with(plots):
animate(spacecurve,[[cos(t),sin(t),t],t=0..T],T=0..2*Pi);
