How to export procedural data to Revit?

I want to produce drawings from a CityEngine model. But I don't want to export non-procedural data (i.e. dumb solids) to a CAD/BIM program. I expect the CityEngine model to change many times and in the meantime drawings need to show the revised models.

If export is required to produce drawings, I want to find a way to export the procedural data, to make the drawing process as efficient and least repetitive as possible.
I can automate the creation of Revit families from procedural data stored in a neutral format such as txt or csv, via Revit's API, so that is not an issue.
But can I script the export of procedural data from CityEngine into a neutral format such as txt or csv?

Any suggestions or advice is more than welcome.
