Importing DXF into CityEngine in correct location

Question asked by matthewpleasant83 on Dec 16, 2018

Does anyone know how to import a DXF file and have it appear at the correct geographic location in CityEngine?

 

I have a DXF of streets that appear in the correct location when opened in ArcMap. However, after importing into CE, I'm unable to download a base map for the streets. When I pull up the Get Map Data dialogue box, CE tells me the view is out of bounds of the current projection or, during other attempts, that the data is located too far from the current scene's contents.

 

I've tried may different ways of importing this file and getting a base map, but there's always a conflict. I haven't found a tutorial or instructions that discusses DXF files, projections, etc., in any detail.
