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.

  • I have also encountered the same problem. I imported a .3ds file to multipatch and my attributes table has only one entry. All buildings are on the same layer and I cannot make any edits. Has anyone any idea how to fix this? Many thanks! – fannko Jul 21 '17 at 18:14
