The following items can be imported by the addon:

  • Buildings. Building height, number of floors are used to create the final scene. Composition into 3D parts for a building with the complex structure is also processed. A large number of roof shapes is supported: flat, gabled, hipped (for a quadrangle outline only), mono-pitched, half-hipped, round, pyramidal, gambrel, dome, onion and saltbox.
  • Water objects (rivers and lakes). Imported as polygons. Coastlines for seas and oceans are importes as edges.
  • Vegetation areas (forests, grass, scrubs). Imported as polygons.
  • Highways, paths and railways. Imported as edges.

Polygons with holes are supported!
