I generated some geometry from a street map and am now trying to export to an FBX file but I am getting an error on every shape I am trying to export and there is no file created.

Using: Esri CityEngine 2011.1 build 1021 (release, win32-64bit) on win 7x64

here is what the log file looks like

Hi !

1] You have a rule assigned, right ? [May ba a silly question, but you never know .. ]

2] Your assignes rule(s) do not have an error, right ?

3] When exporting georeferenced data, make sure you use the offset in the exporter settings to locate the data around the cartesian coordinates so you don't run into 'wobble' issues.
As described here: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/59442-FBX-export-%28models%29-to-3DSMAX

If you need the data still georeferenced, export to kml.


Let me know ..

Matt

This was stupid,
I was exporting shapes not models, obviously there would be nothing there, they look so similar from far away.
Thanks for the wobble reference, I would have surely encountered that in the future had I not read that thread.

Hi !

Just a side note.

In the exporter, there's a dropdown which defines this behavior: The default is that if no rule is assigned, the shapes themselves are exported as if they were a model.

Cheers ! ;)
