Good morning everyone,

I would like to know please what are the main prerequisities on the data (.gdb,.shp,..) before getting to importing to an empty model or a scene() using esri City Engine ?
And How to transform this 2D data into a 3D data (How to get the shape of a building for example)? What is the process to follow in order to create 3D shapefiles ?

Thank you.
