  • Thickness — Gives thickness to planar elements. If the value is positive, the thickness is applied in the positive Z (global) direction and if it is negative the thickness is applied in the negative Z direction. By default, the thickness value is zero. The native element type remains same even after applying the thickness. The thickness property can be used to visualize a planar element in a view window other than the one in which it was drawn, by giving a non-zero thickness value.
