Cannot see the 3D property tabs (Base Height, Extrusion, Rendering) for a new layer in ArcCatalog.
ArcCatalog shows the default (2D) layer property tabs for layer files unless 3D properties have been set for the layer, or unless you 3D-preview the layer in ArcCatalog.
The 3D Analyst Extension must be enabled in ArcCatalog before you can set 3D properties of a layer.
