Being relatively new to CityEngine, I'm coming across this problem myself. It seems really bizarre to me that there is no simple way to rotate or scale an imported model about it's center. As Güçlü says - other 3D packages supply this functionality as standard. Is there no way to do this easily in CityEngine?
After inserting a model in cga using i(), you can rotate it around it's scope's center using r() and specifying the centerSelector as scopeCenter.
To rotate and scale, you could translate, rotate and scale about the origin, and then translate back. Translate using relative offsets.
Lot --> i(asset, yUp, keepSizeAndPosition) Transform(assetInfo(asset,tx)/scope.sx, assetInfo(asset,tz)/scope.sz) Transform(relOffset_x, relOffset_z) --> t('-relOffset_x, 0, '-relOffset_z) r(0, 90, 0) s('2, '1, '0.5) t('relOffset_x, 0, 'relOffset_z)
