This rule creates a 3D cage around the outer edge of a shape or polygon. The cage has a maximum height, and is subdivided vertically a specified number of times. You can label the vertical lines with their height, or with their order from the ground. You can customize the color, thickness, and transparency of the cage’s elements. You can add a title to the cage, such as parcel number or project name. It’s meant to applied to something roughly the size of a district or neighborhood.
