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|
Each symbol layer has a material property that defines the color of the symbol.
The size of all flat symbol layers is defined in either points or pixels (screen space) whereas the size of all volumetric symbol layers is defined in meters (real-world space).
