Applying City Engine Rules Packages (RPK) within a Web Scene

An extremely useful piece of functionality for my organisation would be for users of Portal and ArcGIS Online 3D Scenes and Web Apps to be able to use City Engine Rules packages (RPK) to generate custom mass models on the fly.

From a planning perspective, this would be very powerful, allowing interactive discussions where scenarios could be tested instantly.

For example a rule package authored in City Engine and uploaded to ArcGIS Online could be embedded into a 3D scene to allow planners to mock up a mass model of a building complete with custom setbacks, tower and podium heights. They'd also be able to see dynamically the visual effect this has on the surrounding environment and conduct some analysis such as shadow impacts.
