Hey everyone,

The architecture department at my company exports their models through revit....unfortunetly none of the export formats directly import into CityEngine. These are the following data types: adsk, dgn, dwf, dwfx, dwg, dxf, fbx, pcp, and sat. Does any one know of standard procedures or common transformtaions to get this data into CityEngine?

CityEngine imports: dae, dxf, gdb, kml, kmz, shp and obj.

I've tried to import the dxf, but I get this warning "Invocation target exception".

I've tried using FME simple read/write conversions but the geometries are warped slightly and textures are not maintained. Any ideas?
