# this attribute will be sourced to the object attribute attr RoofElevat = 0
@StartRule Lot --> extrude(RoofElevat)
I have assigned this rule file to my building footprints and set the Start Rule value to "Lot", but my buildings remain flat polygons. I would appreciate any feedback. My hope is that as I get through my project via baby steps I'll be qualified to actually answer some questions.
Thank you Matt. I've viewed the one hour video but will look at those tutorials.
Can you explain why I see no files in the navigator window nor anything in my viewport when I open an existing workspace? When I try to import my CE project it says it is already in the existing workspace but I see no evidence of it.
just create a complete new workspace in CityEngine ( Switch workspace, then enter a new workspace name, that doesn's exist, in the dialog ). then move all projects from the old workspaces in this new one, then import them in the new workspace.
Theoretically not, but I've had 1 other customer had issue with loading stuff ( workspaces, projects ) from somewhere in the network. the poor girl had to create new workspaces quite often.
We've done some tests for this some time ago, where it worked. but as you know, there may be any number of possible issues else, which influence such endeavors. Plus, it's almost impossible to reproduce such issues if you don't have the exact same setup.
Good luck - let me know how it goes.
Anyway - I'd recommend to work on one 'beastly machine' anyway, with fast harddrive and graphics card.. avoiding any network latency, especially when working with big datasets.
Matt, I am going through the video tutorials as well as your mini tutorial . I am still unable to get my buildings to extrude based on an attribute in my GIS data. They all exrtude to the same height. I have followed the steps to assign my extrude attribute to my GIS attribute. I selected Layer Attribute in the "Select Source for attribute". "Object attribute" is greyed out. Any input would be appreciated.
