This rule adds facades with architectural detail to a simple building mass. It’s meant to be run on a closed volume, a closed multipatch in ArcGIS Pro or volumetric shape in CityEngine. You can control the layout of the facade by dictating the length of panels the wall is split in to, and what appears in those panels such as windows, balconies, and blank wall space. You can control the size of the balconies and the windows interactively. The volume itself will dictate the kind of roof, sloped or flat, but you can change the textures and add a parapet to flat roofs. It’s designed to make creating 3D buildings from simple masses quicker and easier.
