Hi there,

I have just downloaded the City Engine free trial and am looking at the potential for its use in relation to the renewables sector, specifically wind turbines.  I have watched quite a few of the tutorials but there are few that seem to deal with the point GIS data.  What I want to do is import in a 3D model of a wind turbine that has been created in SketchUp.  I'm sure it is quite simple and I am just missing something obvious...I have the model in a variety of formats - kmz, obj, dae.  I cannot seem to find a way to import them and assign them to my windfarm layout?  Do I need to write a specific rule for this?

All suggestions would be great.
Thanks for your time and help in advance.
