I'm creating vertical polygons with pyshp tranforming mz geological cross sections into xyz.

If polygons are exactly north-south or east-west directed they draw correctly

otherwise they draw badly.

In ArcScene all is fine.

Anyone had this problem before? It seems some sort of ArcGIS Pro bug.

Cheers

I think the triangulation method in ArcGIS Pro was replaced by a different one which can’t handle the true vertical polygons. In this case every second triangle has a different winding and that’s why the face culling removes them alternately. The true vertical polygons were always problematic and not fully supported—especially in arcpy and ArcSDE. I can’t provide you a solution, just a workaround: run a “Layer 3D To Feature Class” against your shapefile in ArcScene. It would result a multipatch feature class which rendered always correctly—even in ArcGIS Pro. If you can try to make triangulated or ring-based multipatch surfaces from your cross-section data.

Our devs took a look and we've got some ideas.  Thanks for reporting!

In the meantime, Akos has the workaround - the Layer 3D to Feature Class tool.
