IMarker3DPlacement Interface

Provides access to members that control the simple 3D marker symbol origin.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server. Requires 3D Analyst Extension.


The IMarker3DPlacement  interface contains methods and properties which can be used to define the 3D placement of marker 3D symbols. The QueryRotationAngles and SetRotationAngles methods are used to get/set the rotation of the 3D marker symbol about the X, Y, and Z axis.
