This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to download building footprints from OpenStreetMap so I can import them into ESRI's CityEngine but I am only able to download road files (as routes), as seen below.

I am trying to download a section of Seoul (Gangnam) to display the area in CityEngine. I am a newbie to downloading OSM data and any advice is appreciated! Thanks~

Use the 'Export' tab on the OSM website to export an *.osm file.

You can then use the 'Import' option on the File menu in CityEngine 2012.1 to import osm files. You can then select / deselect features to include in your model.

Thanks Sam, I just saw your answer on Twitter as well. I didn't know I can import OSM files directly into CityEngine since I'm just starting out with that software as well! –  Ray Apr 3 '13 at 0:00

you can use http://www.osm974.re/osm2gis/ to convert OSM data to SHPs
