I am Working in ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop, and I would like to create roof polygons from lines, the lines are captured with photogrammetry technique.

As per my requirement I have found tool "3D Building Generator Tool", but tool is based on VBA language.

Can anyone guide me in arcgis 10.1 to create Buildings roof polygon using with Arctoolbox or is there any alternative process?


Multipatch feature are supported 3D building so you can try to use this method.
