I have a multipatch polygon and a pointZ FeatureClass containing a single point. I would like to calculate the distance in X,Y,Z from the point to the closest point on the surface of the multipatch polygon. From reading the documentation, I cannot figure out if the ArcScene "3D Near" function is the right tool or not. Has anyone else tried something similar? What tool did you end up using?
