I've got a local installation of the osm3s running and it works fine with data from openstreetmap.

I would like to use my own custom 3D data. I've got an entire 3D model of a city in Microstation. It's in wireframes. I can set the projection to WGS84 and export it to KML and then convert it with ogr2osm. But when I try to populate the database for osm3s it return with "no elements found".

Looking at the .osm-file does show a lot of nodes etc.

What to do?

Does your generated OSM file contain negative id values (which is the default for ogr2osm)? This will most likely cause some undesired side effects when loading using update_database for Overpass API, such as strange node ids (e.g. "18446744073707268155").

Apart from that I can't really reproduce your issue. I converted some polygons from a PostGIS db to a shape file and then converted this via ogr2osm to an OSM file and loaded the file into Overpass API (latest github version) via update_database. I could query some of the nodes, although their id was completely screwed. This needs to be adjusted in the ogr2osm script.

I believe you need to provide much more details like version of the programs involved, sample OSM snippets, log files etc.

This is the top from the generated XML/OSM file:

Programs involved are Microstation V8i, export to DXF, converted into osm via ogr2osm and loading into overpass-api/osm3s.
