Setting street.front to be world.north edges

Hi,

I have CityEngine 2014.1 Advanced and I'm wanting to use compass directions (world.north, world.east, world.south, world.west) for an envelope operation, which unfortunately only uses street directions (street.front, street.side, street.back) as inputs.

As a workaround, I'm hoping to set the street.front edge to be the northernmost (world.north) edge. Does anybody know a way to do this? I thought perhaps a python script would be able to select all the world.north edges and then set these as the first street edge for their respective parcels...

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks

Nathan

Hi Mat,

Uh-oh, I would like to know how too. Could you show the solutions here? It seems important to have a good control with different systems of direction discriptions, such as world, shape or street. I want to know how to build relationship between them.

Thx

Teal

Hi,

The implementation would take some time, so can only tackle this in some sort of job.

Ok?
