Finding the lowest Point

Hello everyone,


i have the following problem in my Cityengine project. Because of the hilly landscape I built my buildings on flat tops. But then the doors of the buildings are not at the lowest point. As already suggested in another post, I have therefore created stairs.


However, I would still be interested to know if it would be possible to automatically set the doors to the lowest point of the building? In other words, that Cityengine always searches and finds the lowest point in all buildings and then builds the door there.


Is there a way to find the lowest point? Maybe with case conditions or with special commands (maybe geometry.height or scope.elevation or similar)?


I am using the CE 2018.1 version
