CityEngine is advanced 3D modelling software for creating huge, interactive and immersive urban environments in less time than traditional modelling techniques. Cities created in CityEngine can be based on real-world GIS data or showcase a fictional city of the past, present, or future.
Create entire 3D cities
CityEngine powers rapid adjustments to the architectural style or other features of your city so you can easily create multiple design scenarios.
Design urban environments
Make 3D models to show planned changes and alternate designs. Inform your designs with 3D representations of regulatory and land use conditions. Share multiple design alternatives with your team or stakeholders to gather feedback.
Master 3D content creation
CityEngine integrates smoothly with your current creation pipeline. Bring in your hero buildings or other assets to build 3D context around them. Export work back into your high-end visualisation software or game engines. Automate your workflows with procedural scripting and Python.
Bring your community vision to life
CityEngine helps you make quality decisions that will benefit your community for decades. Use it to develop creative and dynamic 3D visualisation experiences. CityEngine’s 3D visualisation power shows you project relationships, feasibility, and implementation.
Build a city in five steps
Find your area of interest. Use ‘Get Map Data’ to import basemap and terrain data.
Add or sketch your streets, city blocks, and parcels.
Move 2D data into 3D models. Add rooftops, furniture, vegetation, and other 3D assets.
Texturise your buildings and facades. Add more details to your 3D models.
Export your finished 3D city to the web, VR experiences, game engines or a geodatabase.
Design with 3D modelling tools
Create beautiful real-world or imaginary environments easily. Save time by building large urban environments with procedural modelling and scripting.
Visualise and measure scenarios
Create multiple design alternatives within a single scene and compare them. Display scenarios side-by-side for visual comparison and analysis.
Experience seamless integration into your current pipelines and workflows by exporting your CityEngine scenes as industry standard 3D data formats.
Showcase your designs
Publish your 3D models online. Others can interact with them, understand your plans and designs, and participate in improving the overall project.
