Why does the hot aisle containment shrink while on 3d view? Also can the color be changed? Containment appears regular size

I have seen similar with some of my cold aisles. Some work, some don't, despite the proper measurements. Obviously, the CFD could not operate that way.

As you can see - in the upper left, I have a proper looking containment - the silly looking containment here actually extends 2 tiles (48 inches) in front of these cabinets - that is what is shown in 2d - this problem shows up in for 2 rows - why? how do you fix it so that it represents the 2d ?

The representation of the cold/hot aisle containment systems in 2D and 3D are different, they do not shrink.
Make sure that equipment inside the containment system (such as racks, cooling units, etc.) are covered by the containment system without any gaps. The following image is to illustrate modeling both Cold and Hot Aisle Containment system:
