Perhaps one of these two methods will work for you: ArcMAP Select by Location 3D relationships and ArcScene Select by 3D Box How about Inside 3D (3D Analyst)? Since the output of Extrude Between is a feature class with multipatch 3D features, can you use this tool to identify the 3D Point features which are within the resulting soil horizons?

If you are trying to match an existing raster in ArcPy you set the extent to that raster and it's also a good idea to set the snapRaster as well: import arcpy InRaster = "c:\\some\\path\\to\\raster.tif" DescObj = arcpy.Describe(InRaster) arcpy.env.extent = DescObj.extent # match the extent of the input raster arcpy.env.snapRaster = InRaster # match the ...

Create a matching polyline layer with an elevation field and populate with values that match the extrusion height. Display the polyline layer with the base height set to "Use a constant elevation offset in scene units" and choose the elevation height field you created that matches the extrusion height of the polygon layer. This approach will outline the ...

You can define the origin as the Xmin, Ymin (or Left & Bottom) of the extent environment setting. Click the Environment button at the bottom of the tool's interface, click Processing Extent and fill in the extent properties. You have to indicate Xmax & Ymax (Right, Top) as well:

in the layer properties, you can set the base height of your polygon layer based on your interpolated surface (Properties > Elevation > Floating on a custom surface). Copy-paste your layer in your data frame as many times as you need and change this property for each of your surface.

I did this many years ago in England/Ireland using the TIN module of ARC/INFO, so I would be surprised if the 3D Analyst module of ArcGIS for Desktop could not do the same and better. My recollection is that I just created a TIN surface using the depth values for each of the peat types. Nowadays I would look into using a terrain dataset, and there are ...

The project tool will not convert your Z values, but you can project your polygon shapefile to your desired CS and then obtain the appropriate Z-values using the Data Management Tools - Features - Adjust 3D Z. This tool gives you the option to apply a manual conversion factor or choose from a set of predefined conversions (including meters to feet). Note ...
