I get the message "The data extent is to large. Reduce the extent of the data".  So what is the maximum data extent?

I guess it's a function of the base unit of the coordinate system.  It would be good to know how to calculate it so I can remove an element of trial and error from my work.

(For the sake of argument I usually work in 'Raw data in metres'.)

I know there is another way to increase the size of the project by increasing the size of free memory (bottom right corner of CityEngine)

Hi Ben

Do you get the message when importing data in an new/empty scene?

Thanks

Yes I get the message in new/empty scene but obviously, as the message suggests, only with data that covers a large extent.
