Sandbox From Scratch tool introduction

Use the Sandbox From Scratch tool to generate a flat triangulated TIN that can be sculpted into other forms using other sandbox tools. The Sandbox From Scratch tool generates the TIN in the red/green or ground plane. This tool is useful in creating terrain when no other terrain model or data is available. Activate the Sandbox From Scratch tool from the Draw menu.

Note: You must enable the Sandbox tools before you can use them. See Enabling the Sandbox tools for further information.
