Due to popular demand here is a GP tool for Extruding Polygons in ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Pro.

The tool enables two approaches to extruding polygon features.

  1. Extrude by "Attribute"
  2. Extrude by "Height Value"

 

The following Video shows how to use the tools in ArcGIS Pro: ExtrudeFeature.wmv - Box
