is there a plugin for QGIS, which extrudes buildings with sort of random heights and adds a roof on top?

Ideally, the plugin would also put different textures as facades, e.g., having some templates for a small village v a large city.

I'm looking for something comparable to ESRI CityEngine for QGIS.


At this stage putting textures on buildings is maybe asking too much to QGIS (rather export your data to a dedicated 3D Modeler ?) but you can try the 2.5D Renderer style that is internally provided by QGIS since version 2.14. You only need to provide the building height in one of your attribute table columns. See Experiments in the 3rd dimension By Anita Graser.
