# Times (3D Analyst)

## Summary

Multiplies the values of two rasters on a cell-by-cell basis.

## Usage

• The order of inputs is irrelevant for this tool.

• If both inputs are integer, the output will be an integer raster; otherwise, it will be a floating-point raster.

• If both inputs are single band rasters, or one of the inputs is a constant, the output will be a single band raster.

• If both inputs are multiband rasters, or one of the inputs is a constant, the output will be a multiband raster. The number of bands in each multiband input must be the same.

• The tool will perform the operation on each band from one input against the corresponding band from the other input. If one of the inputs is a multiband raster and the other input is a constant, the tool will perform the operation against the constant value for each band in the multiband input.

## Syntax

`arcpy.3d.Times(in_raster_or_constant1, in_raster_or_constant2, out_raster)`
 Parameter Explanation Data Type in_raster_or_constant1 The input containing the values to be multiplied.A number can be used as an input for this parameter, provided a raster is specified for the other parameter. To specify a number for both inputs, the cell size and extent must first be set in the environment. Raster Layer; Constant in_raster_or_constant2 The input containing the values by which the first input will be multiplied.A number can be used as an input for this parameter, provided a raster is specified for the other parameter. To specify a number for both inputs, the cell size and extent must first be set in the environment. Raster Layer; Constant out_raster The output raster.The cell values are the product of the first input multiplied by the second. Raster Dataset

## Code sample

Times example 1 (Python window)

This example multiplies the values of an input elevation raster by a constant value to convert the elevation values from feet to meters.

``````import arcpy
from arcpy import env
env.workspace = "C:/data"
arcpy.Times_3d("elevation", 0.3048, "C:/output/outtimes")``````
Times example 2 (stand-alone script)

This example multiplies the values of an input elevation raster by a constant value to convert the elevation values from feet to meters.

``````# Name: Times_3D_Ex_02.py
# Description: Multiplies the values of two rasters on a cell-by-cell basis.
# Requirements: 3D Analyst Extension

# Import system modules
import arcpy
