Ok, so I saw something similar to my issue in this thread http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/51670-Comp-select-for-different-areas-on-same-face?highlight=comp+s....
My big issue is, that I need to be able to assign different rules on each splited face, and since I thought it would be easier, I created the building with the polygon shape creation, and it is facing southwest. So I would not need any extrusion on my building. How do I separate each face, so I able to assign a rulefile to each one?

Ah,

that's easy.


Use comp(f), and then comp.index to assign rules.


Building -->     comp(f) {         0: FacadeRule         | 1 : RoofRule         ..     }


Note that the face indices may be scrabled up.

Note also that to create facades correctly, you may need to align the scope.

e.g. with
alignScopeToGeometry(zUp, any, world.lowest)

I should mention that the small long peace of building in the front is a brick wall, the one just next to it is a glass facade, so a color on all south west facades would not work for me, since I got 3 different facades facing the same direction!

I�??m sure it�??s, but I think I miss some basic understanding in the comp function ;)
The comp(f) : will get each face into a new shape.
If I use the comp.index, then I able to actually separate the faces from each other with some kind of id-? I can then use a case function like case comp.index ==  10 : color (�??#FFFFFF�?�), or should I replace the comp.index with �??id�?�

If I click a face in my model I can see a Face (index 10) is that the number that describes the face id? At this point I tried with a lot of colors and a lot of id, and the only thing I get color on is the roof
