Default output Z value


The default z-values that will be applied to newly generated output features of feature classes containing z-values providing a base value so all features can be projected in 3D.

TINs and features with 3D geometries (pointZ, polylineZ, polygonZ, and multipatch shapes, for example) are automatically drawn in 3D. Rasters (grids and images) and 2D features are drawn as though they were resting on a flat surface. To view rasters and 2D features in 3D, you need to define their z-value.
