# ST_3DDFullyWithin

## Name

ST_3DDFullyWithin — Returns true if two 3D geometries are entirely within a given 3D distance

## Synopsis

``` boolean ST_3DDFullyWithin ( ``` geometry g1 , geometry g2 , double precision distance ``` ) ``` ;

## Description

Returns true if the 3D geometries are fully within the specified distance of one another. The distance is specified in units defined by the spatial reference system of the geometries. For this function to make sense, the source geometries must both be of the same coordinate projection, having the same SRID.

 This function automatically includes a bounding box comparison that makes use of any spatial indexes that are available on the geometries.

Availability: 2.0.0

This function supports 3d and will not drop the z-index.

This function supports Polyhedral surfaces.

## Examples

```    -- This compares the difference between fully within and distance within as well
-- as the distance fully within for the 2D footprint of the line/point vs. the 3d fully within
