So i have about 30 Buildings that i 3d modeled, they are seperated as Huge,Big,Medium and small, so all the huge onces have the same Rectanglar base width and lengh , so are the other ones, my question is how can i use my 3d models instead of genereating buildings proceduraly and how can i use those buildings base width and lengh to make city engine knows where to put the huge,big,medium and small

Hello @mohamadhani 

Thank you for your question. Procedural modeling with CityEngine allows you to use premodeled 3D buildings. To find the best fit for any given Parcel geometry, use assetBestSize function—ArcGIS CityEngine Resources | Documentation or one of the related asset utility functions.

Thank you for responce @ThomasFuchs , But as you can see we would need some randomization can you tell me how can we do that ?

For randomly picking a fitting asset, please use the assetApproxSize function with the parameter n>1
assetApproxSize function—ArcGIS CityEngine Resources | Documentation
