I'm trying to build 3D buildings from 2D footprints. I extrude by the building heights, and input the surface by editing the properties. From here I use the Layer 3D to Feature Class tool to convert to multipatch.

However the output from this results in a seemingly empty feature class, with no entries in the Attribute Table. I've tried saving the extruded buildings as a layer and using that as input to the Layer 3D to Feature Class tool, producing the same result of an empty feature class.

Am I missing something about this tool? Thanks for any help.
