Hi Jesse, Maybe we can have a discussion about overpasses for wildlife and what that would look like. Maybe a rule outside the street rule is appropriate to think about (thinking about elongated arch -something like they are talking about for the I-90). Do you think this should be built directly into the rule? At this time, I might actually…
This video gives a brief introduction to the wall sign rule for Esri CityEngine. This rule simply allows you to insert an image of a sign into a geometry, and set it at a specified, height, rotation, and size. Simple example of inserting imagery into a model.
This video gives a brief introduction to the airplane jetway rule for Esri CityEngine and ArcGIS Pro. It creates the connection you use to walk from a terminal to an airplane, commonly called a jetway or jet bridge. It has presets for different types of planes that automatically sets the correct height of the arm.
This video gives a brief introduction to the Storage Tank rule for Esri CityEngine and ArcGIS Pro. This rule creates a storage tank for fuel, water, or some other substance. You can change the diameter of the tank by changing the size/scope of the shape/polygon it is applied to.
This video gives a brief introduction to the Runway Sign rule for Esri CityEngine and ArcGIS Pro. This rule creates a 3D sign that you can the customize. You can add your own messages on the front and back of the sign.
This rule allows you to create a procedural generated catch basin, part of a typical storm water system. You can control the size of the basin, the depth, the thickness of the walls and tops, and the size of the drainage grate at the top.
These rules allows you to create reference cages around a parcel or a region. You can use these cages as visual guides when creating 3D models to better understand how large they are, or as a form of scalar.
This rule allows you to create volumetric representation of zoning on parcels. There is a set list of zoning types, with preset values, that you can customize. You can change the way the volume is constrained based on street and side setbacks, maximum height, and angle step back from parcel edge.
This rule allows you to apply thematic mapping to shapes in CityEngine. In this case we are using zoning as the example, but it could be customized for any set of attributes you have on your shape, and I show that with a little live editing of the CGA rule.
This rule of the week allows you to create an elevated rail guideway. It's a variant of the rule we previously posted, customized for the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). They wanted a version that had the tracks underneath for a suspended rail system, and a green space on top for pedestrians and cyclists.
