I have just downloaded the City Engine free trial and am looking at the potential for its use in relation to the renewables sector, specifically wind turbines. I have watched quite a few of the tutorials but there are few that seem to deal with the point GIS data. What I want to do is import in a 3D model of a wind turbine that has been created in SketchUp. I'm sure it is quite simple and I am just missing something obvious...I have the model in a variety of formats - kmz, obj, dae. I cannot seem to find a way to import them and assign them to my windfarm layout? Do I need to write a specific rule for this?
All suggestions would be great. Thanks for your time and help in advance. Tricia
