Entourage and RPC Content

Overview

By default, Enscape automatically replaces the sample set of RPCs that come shipped with Revit with 3D models that simply function better in 3D space.
This replacement content is locked and can not be altered or modified by the user.

A great way to check which content is being exchanged by Enscape is to download the RPC Test Project. In the following screenshot you can see how much better the Enscape content on the bottom is.

Many Enscape users have asked about Entourage and RPC content within Enscape. If you want to use more RPC then it is well within your grasp. If you’re looking to place more people, cars, and trees within your projects then this will help you make your projects burst with life: When using Enscape all Archvision RPC content is supported. All it takes is to uncheck the option in the Enscape settings window, and remember to restart Enscape for this change to take effect.

When you add something to your project it will instantly show in the Enscape window.

What you need to know about using RPC and Archvision:

  • Go to the Enscape Settings then click on the Advanced tab
  • You will see an option “Replace Archvision Content”
  • When unchecked, it will use the standard Archvision RPC’s but you will have to restart the program for the changes to take effect.
  • It is checked by default and it will use the Enscape 3D models

Archvision Watermarked RPC

If you’ve tried using Archvision content without an Archvision subscription, Archvision content will show up with a watermark (red stripes going through it). If you have a subscription to Archvision, then it will become unmarked in Revit but not in Enscape, and the reason for this is that Enscape buffers textures (including RPC’s) into the following folder:

%AppData%\Enscape\Data\Textures

You must then delete the contents of this folder, restart Enscape, and Enscape will recreate the buffered content. This means your Archvision content will no longer have the watermark.

RPC Creator

Archvision provides 3D+ RPC creator which make it possible for you to create your own 3D+RPC content from regular 3D models. This was something that was not available before, so give it a look and learn more.
