Can I calculate the approximate average slope of a (non-planar) shape?
Yes, by using the following example. Please note that this is CGA sample code and may not apply in all situations.
CGA stands for Computer Generated Architecture, a scripting language specific to Esri CityEngine and used to generate 3D content. See the link to the 'Basics of Rule-based Modeling' in the Related Information section below.
slopeFunction = atan ( sqrt ( scope.sy / scope.sz) )
print ( slopeFunction )
