Extrude Between

Summary

Creates 3D features by extruding each input feature between two triangulated irregular network (TIN) datasets.

Illustration

Usage

  • Only the portion of input features that overlap the XY extent of both TINs will be represented in the output.

  • The geometry of the extruded features depends on the geometry of the input features:

    • Line and polygon input features result in the creation of multipatch geometry.
    • Point input features result in the creation of line geometry.

Syntax

ExtrudeBetween_3d (in_tin1, in_tin2, in_feature_class, out_feature_class)
ParameterExplanationData Type
in_tin1

The first input TIN.

TIN Layer
in_tin2

The second input TIN.

TIN Layer
in_feature_class

The features that will be extruded between the TINs.

Feature Layer
out_feature_class

The output that will store the extruded features.

Feature Class

Code sample

ExtrudeBetween example 1 (Python window)

The following sample demonstrates the use of this tool in the Python window.

arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/data"
arcpy.ExtrudeBetween_3d("tin1", "tin2", "study_area.shp", "extrusion.shp")
ExtrudeBetween example 2 (stand-alone script)

The following sample demonstrates the use of this tool in a stand-alone Python script.

'''****************************************************************************
Name: ExtrudeBetween Example
Description: This script demonstrates how to use the
             ExtrudeBetween tool.
****************************************************************************'''

# Import system modules
import arcpy

# Set environment settings
arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/data"

# Set Local Variables
inTIN1 = "ceiling"
inTIN2 = "floor"
inPoly = "study_area.shp"

# Ensure output has a unique name
outMP = arcpy.CreateUniqueName("extrusion.shp")

#Execute ExtrudeBetween
arcpy.ExtrudeBetween_3d(inTIN1, inTIN2, inPoly, outMP)
