The following instructions will show how to use RPCs in Autodesk Revit. Configuration instructions for Revit LT users are available here.
1. Get the Dashboard
The first step is to install the ArchVision Dashboard.
Note: The first time ArchVision Dashboard is launched users are prompted to create an account. All users should create unique accounts.
2. Install the RPC Plug-in for Revit
Use the Dashboard to install the RPC Plug-in for Revit.
Click on Plug-ins/Software and then select Update next to the detected Revit products to install. Follow the onscreen instructions.
Note: Drag & Drop support available in Autodesk Revit 2013 or later.
Note: Network Administrators can download .msi files for network deployment here
3. Configure Content Paths (if necesssary)
The Dashboard provides Revit with the location of RPC files. The default location is C:\RPC. If this is your first time using the product you can use the defaults. To customize alternative content locations:
Open Dashboard and select Preferences then Configure Paths to modify RPC path info.
Click on Add Path to add a content path and click on ... to modify the download path.
4. Revit Connection Settings
In Revit's Options dialog change the Network Address setting under Redering to connect to the local Dashboard using 127.0.0.1. Make sure that no Additional Render Appearance Paths including RPCs are used.
5. Drag & Drop from Dashboard into Revit
Simply click on the picture of an object in the Dashboard and Drag it into Revit. Note: Make sure that the object has a blue icon next to it. Blue icons indicate that the content has been downloaded, is in the path of the Dashboard and recognized by Revit.
