I am trying to create a ModelBuilder in ArcGIS Pro to convert KML files to Multipatch. The steps:

  1. KML to Layer tool
  2. I select the layer and in the Appearance contextual tabs, I will extrude the height
  3. Layer 3D to Feature Class tool

I have the conversion tools which i can add into the model, but I cannot find a tool to extrude the layer height, thus I cannot create a model to automate the process. Is there a way where I can extrude the height using tool in ModelBuilder, so the when I convert to Multipatch, it will contain the height as well?

    Try: manually perform the workflow, once the layer looks how you want it, create a LYRX file and save it to disk. Then build your model with Apply Symbology from Layer tool in between the 2 tools. Alternatively look at using a task, while it wont completely automate a 1 -click solution, you can have it launch tools and believe can have it aid in performing the symbolization. – KHibma Oct 14 '15 at 13:02
