First of all, the 3500 is still supported, but both are more or less obsolete and replaced years ago by Grafik QS. If this is a new project, I highly recommend Grafik QS. But for the purpose of the question, most of this info is relevant to all models.
Now, I have never have done this myself, but I think you will find the answer here:
It looks like on any 3000 (3100 or 3500) series you can select a scene and request scene status, but for raise lower it appears you have to state all the zones to raise / lower, basically redefine the scene in the command. But remember if you adjust a zone (or a scene for that matter) you are taking the unit away from whatever scene it was on and that scene status is no longer valid. You can also request Zone Intensities, depending on what you may want to do or info you want to pull. What is not entirely clear to me is, is this "raise zone" command a simple incremental press of the raise button or if you have to use it on conjunction with zone raise stop.
One of the few things 3500 specific was "Set Control Unit Intensities". This is basically another way to do a scene. There are other implications but for most common scenarios a scene will do the same things.
Zone Lower Example:
Command Name: D
Description: Zone lower ramps down specific zones on a single GRAFIK Eye Control Unit.
Syntax: D[Control Unit][zones]<CR>
Allowed Values: Control Unit 1-8 (Control Units on link) / 0-8 Zones to ramp down
5<CR> ramp down all zones on Control Unit 5
3124<CR> ramp down zones 1, 2, and 4 on Control Unit 3
This command will not affect shade zones.
