Typically in this step, a mass model can be divided into its facades by applying the component split. After the initial facade structure has been defined, the tiles can be modeled.

This rule file is executed when the tutirial is triggered. The tutogial types are described in the following table: The z dimension is set to The Floor rule is a typical example of the subdivision of a floor into tiles of an approximate width of 3.

Tutorial 1: Essential skills

This tutorial was developed in collaboration with Matthias Buehler http: The width and height of the scope are not affected since relative coordinates are used: We add landmarks by changing the design of the two adjacent buildings.

Next, we zoom in on one building plots and further refine typology and design. Based on these conditions, we plan for mixed-usage along the main street with shops on the ground floor and services on the upper floors; plus residential usage behind the buildings.


First, the facade can be decomposed into floors.

Tutorial 6: Basic shape grammar

Add a new attribute LOD to the existing attributes in the. The goal is to design a mixed use quarter, where shopping, living, and citgengine will take place. For window and door elements, you only set the colormap to the desired texture. While the Selection Tool is active, press Ctrl and Shift to either add or subtract from your selection. Remember the assigned start rule in the Inspector.

Examining your current model, you’ll see that you can save polygons mainly on the window assets.

The modes are also listed in the Selection Tool submenu in the toolbar. The setupProjection command prepares the UV coordinate projections cityenine the facades for color channel 0 and dirt map channel 2projected onto the scope’s xy plane; therefore, scope. You’ll now create a low resolution version in a few steps.

Later in this tutorial, you’ll need rule files and assets eeri the generation of the building models. Using the operation s x,y,zthe size of the scope can be set in the Wall rule. This section looks at the different navigation schemes available.

The Tile rule defines the appearance of the tile by splitting along x- and y-axis with a nested tutoeial. The EntranceTile rule defines the entrance shape in a similar way as the tile shape but, obviously, with no wall on the bottom.


This rule splits the shape named Building, the mass model, into its faces by applying a component split.

Introduction to the CityEngine tutorials—CityEngine Tutorials | ArcGIS Desktop

As you will see, CityEngine can be used in multiple contexts, disciplines, and planning phases for your projects. A tile typically consists of wall and window elements. Setting the maximum building height usually this is defined in the existing building and zoning regulations.

CityEngine is a procedural modeling application. Now let us have a look at how we can use the given rules to visualize seri broken zoning regulations. In this part of the tutorial, we focus on the definition of the development framework.

The SideFacade rule splits the side facades into floor shapes. It should look similar to the following screen shot: In the next section, tjtorial add random variation to your simple buildings. The Grow Streets dialog box appears. In this section, you’ll add a simple level of detail LOD mechanism to your simple building.

The current shape is translated The simplest way this is done is by defining esdi value as a user set value in the rule.
