    Extrude shapefile according to height attribute


      I have imported a shapefile into CityEngin and need to extrude the buildings according to an existing height attribute in the shapefile. For example: If there are 3 buildings with height values of 30; 70; 20. Then the buildings have to be extruded according to each one's value.
      Do I need to create an attribute which represents the height attribute for each specific shape? The height attribute is Building_height.

      attr z = Building_height
      Lot --> Shape extrude(z)

      Do I need to define the shapefile in the rule code?

      Any help will be greatly appreciated
