Symbol layers are used to define the visualization of Point, Polyline, Polygon, and mesh geometries rendered with 3D symbols. 3D symbols may only be used to render features in a FeatureLayer, SceneLayer, or standalone graphics in a 3D SceneView. There is no support for 3D symbols in 2D MapViews.
All 3D symbols have a symbolLayers
property, which is an array of Symbol3DLayer objects. All symbols must have at least
one symbol layer added to the
symbolLayers property. Think of the
symbol object as a container that holds multiple
symbol layers which define the appearance of the symbol. One layer may be an outline, another the fill, etc.
The relationship of symbol layers to symbol is similar to the relationship
of operational layers to a Map.
|Symbol3DLayer Type||Symbol3D Type||Flat/Volumetric||Size Units||Example|
|TextSymbol3DLayer||PointSymbol3D, PolygonSymbol3D, LabelSymbol3D||flat||points|
The size of flat symbol layers is usually defined in either points or pixels (screen space) whereas the size of volumetric symbol layers is defined in meters (real-world space).

Creates a new instance of this class and initializes it with values from a JSON object generated from an ArcGIS product.
Converts an instance of this class to its ArcGIS portal JSON representation.
Creates a new instance of this class and initializes it with values from a JSON object generated from an ArcGIS product. The object passed into the input
jsonparameter often comes from a response to a query operation in the REST API or a toJSON() method from another ArcGIS product. See the Using fromJSON() topic in the Guide for details and examples of when and how to use this function.Parameter:json Object
A JSON representation of the instance in the ArcGIS format. See the ArcGIS REST API documentation for examples of the structure of various input JSON objects.Returns:
Type Description * Returns a new instance of this class.
