Is it possible to extrude an an angle other than vertical in ArcScene?
I am trying to visually display some mine adits that cut between two layers at an angle of 30 degrees.

I would extrude the feature vertically then rotate the feature along the axis you want (https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/extensions/3d-analyst/rotating-a-feature-in-3d-using-the-rotate-command.htm ). Then I would remove/sculpt out sections of the feature that are inaccurate, using vertex editing (https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/extensions/3d-analyst/vertex-editing-in-3d.htm).
You may also want to refer to a previous post that discusses using ArcObjects for this: Extrude Inclined 3D Boreholes. This would require the use of code and the IExtrude interface.
