Hi all,

I have several poly shapes I created in City-engine (and some from OSM) I extruded, I would like to detect the poly facing the street.

One possibility I have considered (but not sure how to implement) is to paint a map of the streets and detect if a color is near the face (this would be a street attrib)

any help from large brains, much appreciated

This might be what you need. Please let us know if this works for you.

Will try but thought this would not work if a shape was not generated from lot, as the attribute "street" would not be there for it to derive from.

yes as i thought, does not work.

do you know if the mapping method will work, ie. creating a colour map of all the streets (perhaps slightly lager so a poly can sample below its position)
