I just found the 3d tagging scheme for JOSM and it helps a lot. Another topic was the 3d tagging of the area of the new vienna main station.

The tags I do add for 3d, if possible: * building=* * building:levels= * building:levels:underground= * building:min_levels= * building:colour= * building:material= * height= (in meter..) * roof:colour= * roof:shape= * roof:orientation= * roof:height= * roof:material= * roof:levels=

For colours I do use this chart:

Important is the relation of type=building for all building parts.

EDIT All is noted in the guidelines, supported by the 3 bigger 3D renderer of OSM data.

In the simple 3D building tagging scheme the tag building:material was decided to be used. Thats the tag which will be used and set by all the three major 3D renderer. While the material tag is uses 115.000 times and cladding is used 15.000 times.

thank you lars
