Chamfer Lot Corners

Good morning,

For many of our Chinese projects, we are faced with the problem of creating parcel boundaries that have chamfered corners. This can be a laborious task in CAD, particularly if you have hundreds of blocks.


It seems like CityEngine could be used to automatically generate these parcel lines (in addition to curb lines, etc), but I can't come up with a way to actually do it.

What we would be interested in is just a simple chamfer on each of the lot's corners, before additional rules are applied. In our case, we are NOT using built-in lot subdivisions, so just assume it's the entire block that needs to be setback somehow. In the simplest case, the chamfer distance is the same in all directions, but that value should be user adjustable.

Any thoughts on how to approach this problem?
