Use RPC components in Revit for fast improvements to VR and renderings with little computer performance impact in Revit.
- [Instructor] One trick to getting the most out of your Revit model, when it comes to renderings, or virtual reality, or other kinds of visualizations, is the use of RPC. RPC elements are part of a system from ArcVision that takes simple elements in your Revit model, and then interprets the as more visually appealing elements in your visualization. So as an example, these trees. In plan, they're just simple circle and line drawings, which is a carry over from when plans were hand drawn.
And if we look in 3D, we can see that they are very simple, and easy for a graphics card to render. Just two planes sitting across from each other. But let's look how Enscape interprets them. Here you can see they are complex, highly detailed, and very expressive trees. Every copy of Revit comes standard with a handful of these RPC elements, trees, and plants, and some entourage. With a subscription from ArcVision, you can create your own, or get many more from their library.
But for the sake of this class, I just want you to understand what they are, and how to use them. So let's go in and place just a few more. We'll go to our floor plan, go to Place a Component, and Load Family. Here in the Entourage folder, you can find people, cars, furniture. Let's go ahead and put a person in our lobby, and then let them have a conversation.
Rotate after placement, so you can turn him to face her. And let's see how this looks. Here we are, now our visualizations can start to feel more alive.
