Okay so this came sooner than I thought it would and just in time for the Esri UC in San Diego next week!
If you are a CityEngine user this is a very good release with key improvements that will make our lives easier when working on projects. If you’re thinking about working with CityEngine for the first time this is a good release to come in on, and you can come to us for one-to-one training to get you started!
I’ve not got time to give you a run down of all the new features and interface improvements that have gone in to this release, but you can read my blog post on the beta release I was using here.
I can give you a key some key highlights though:
- A user interface refresh
- Scenario based planning and custom dashboards
- Local edits for procedural models
- Measurement tools
- CGA neighbourhood queries (more advanced occlusion queries)
- Improved import and export functionality including unit information for FBX exports. Also KML can export multiple models to SketchUp.
