Just a quick post to say something exciting happened whilst I was away at GISWORX last week, DigitalDales (trading/operating as FibreGarden) has started to dig in the ducting that will carry the community Fibre network. This will be great for Garsdale Design as well as residents up Garsdale and Dentdale who will when completed have a word class fibre optic broadband network. This will change everything around here.
Last week Garsdale Design (that is myself and Matthias) attended, exhibited as well as conducted a workshop at the Middle East’s premier annual Esri GIS conference called GISWORX held in Dubai. This is hosted and run by GISTEC an Esri Distributor. Those who follow me know I’ve been before, in fact I was the guest speaker the first time around (The Power of Play).
In celebration of the new release of CityEngine 2015 (click here for release notes) and the announcement of a new feature set called ‘handles’ we’ve produced this AnimatedGIF (next time I might just do a video).
Comments on this post should really only be suggestions as to what these two are saying I think.
It’s that time of year when a new release of CityEngine becomes available (okay we think it maybe the 9th of April)! Yes we would love more bug fixes and features added, but they’re a small development team so we shall forgive them (this time…).
offset, roofGable and roofHip operations: made offset / roof construction more stable on polygons with co-linear vertices and fixed a memory explosion bug.
cleanupGeometry operation: fixed bug which led to illegal material assignements (“filled holes rendering bug”) on edge cleanup for geometries with per-face-materials.
Fixed undefined behaviour if the same name was used for a scalar attr and a map attr.
CGA compiler: Parameteric rules and functions with a large number of parameters do not hang the compiler / CityEngine anymore.
get/setExportDatasetRelationships in FGDBExportModelSettings
get/setExportFeatures in FGDBExportModelSettings
get/setAddObjectAttributes renamed to get/setExportObjectAttributes in FGDBExportModelSettings
Several new methods in FGDBImportSettings
setFloat in ImageExportTerrainSettings
additional argument animate for View3D.restoreBookmark and View3D.setCameraPerspective
Selection behaviour change in UI changes behaviour of ce.selection(), ce.setSelection() in cases where shape has a model. To get the shape from a selection with shape and model, usece.getObjectsFrom(ce.selection, ce.isShape) instead of ce.selection()
