CityEngine 2017.0 now released

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!

CityEngine 2017.0 has now been released and you can download it from your ‘My Esri‘ area, alternately you can grab a 30-day free trial here.

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.
