Latex users can use the pgf package with the 'random steps' or 'bent' line decorations, as already answered in this tex.stackexchange question.

comment Support for Multidimensional Scaling (MDS)?
@Szabolcs I tried the MDS.m package and it does work in 8, at least their sample notebook runs fine. But, I tried it with some of my data (78 points, their example has 12 points) and it took too long (I stopped it after 30mins). So, that won't work for me.

Thanks! I didn't know about that. But, there does not seem to be a way to change the edge length (is there?). In my graph some edges would be much longer than others.

Thanks, I think this is the answer to the question.

I saw that but, I'm not sure that it works. I tried distances2points[{{0, 1, 1}, {1, 0, 1}, {1, 1, 0}}] and the resulting points do not form an equilateral triangle, as I was expecting.
