I want to compare the position of two shapes with each other and want to use the basic extent function of arcpy but there is an import error for the arcpy module: "No module named arcpy"...anyone know why this import is not working?

It might be because CityEngine uses Jython and not Python... Some modules aren't available in Jython (like numpy I think). This is just a guess, though.

Is this still the case for CityEngine 2017.1?
