I was trying to convert a 2D shapefile of building footprint to 3D SketchUp-readable file.
I first opened the shapefile in ArcGlobe, and in properties set building height as extrusion parameter. Then I used "3D to feature" to convert shapefiles to multipatch.
The last step was supposed to be "Multipatch to collada", one conversion tool, but ArcGIS crashed, saying:
Background processing has encountered a serious error and is unable to continue
I tried disabling background processing, and then the application crashed when re-running the tool.
Any thoughts what happened, or any suggestions how to convert shapefile (with height value) to collada?
I am using ArcGIS 10.3 student edition, on Windows operation system.
