When I try to import objects from a rule or by drag and drop from my assets, I get the message below.  Also, the objects will not show up in the preview window. It was working and then just stopped all of a sudden. Any idea how to fix this?

When in doubt, restart.... especially when it involves something that was running, and suddenly isn't. Also, backup your projects regularly.

And I want to see that building behind the dialog box. Plants up the side of the building...awesome. Model or texture?

haha..yes I try to backup my workspace regularly...I learned that the hard way.  I am going to restart everything and see if that helps.  Its doing it in all scenes now.

Thanks!..Its is a model vine (i have creeping vine, and wisteria vine). Im trying to write a rule to generate building styles based on a country selection, and then see if i can make them "green" and possibly score them on how green they are.  Just started it.

The vines that are supposed to be on the balcony railing itself are what is missing due to the import error.

Nice scene!

I notice the ice cream shop building seems to be leaning a bit.  I often use the below code at the beginning of building rules, just so that I don't need to use "Align Shapes To Terrain" tool (with "Project to Object Average" setting) on the shapes:

YourBuildingRule -->

     # Align scope to yUp world axis.

     alignScopeToAxes(y)

     # Flatten site for vertical extrusion.

     s('1,0,'1)

Sweet!

I never thought of using s operation to flatten.  Huge help. Thanks.

Check this sample from one block i made...this is where its headed next....using the Lumen extension for CityEngine.

Not yet it seems.  I have my workspace saved and backed up.  Should I attempt a re-install of CE?

Also, i have not updated to the 2015.1 (still 2015.0).  Would that make a difference?

Well, those little version changes usually include bug fixes. I haven't heard of this bug, but definitely try. You can keep 2015.0 installed and make a new workspace for 2015.1.
