Treetop walkway in CityEngine

Inspired by the treetop walkway in Kew gardens I thought I’d make a quick rule file to change a road network into one.  Here is a screen capture of the result.

Treetop Walkway, plus trees controlled by elevation and soil type.

It is really quite simple and small as rule files go, and I still need to make proper handrails and of course an access point (stairs and lift).   I used SketchUp to model the pylon and then adjusted the road width to a walkway width and the sidewalks are used as railings.   Instead of junctions I used roundabouts and placed the SketchUp pylon model in the centre of the roundabout.

Different rule file from above similar result….

I hope to put this example and others up online in the near future….
