    People, plants, cars etc libraries for rendering

    Hello

    Where do you guys take your rendering objects such as people, cars, plants etc. Revit built-in libraries are a little short, do you have any tested and trusted resource, preferably free, or you rely on professional rendering plugins for this type of work?

    I use the RPC All Access, for ones that i want to see in Realistic Mode inside Revit.

    If you want to see them in other software (like Enscape), you can use RPC or the Enscape Assets, as well.

    Revitcity has these content for free. However it is a hit and missed.

    If your using render software have a look at the sketchup 3D warehouse. There is a lot in there, and since its sketchup you can edit it how you like.

    If you want Revit families. There are websites like BIMobject who have a lot of models. Also a lot of outside, indoors furniture and infrastructure. But just be carefull not to clutter your model with thousands of materials and parameters.

    There are few native revit content vehicles on revitcity. They're acceptable.

    For people I've take paparazzi pictures and made thin smoked glass extrusions based off of them. I used the paparazzi pics due to their high resolution. Queen Latifa has graced many of my buildings.

    The items that come in Lumion Pro package are top notch.
    Enscape is ok but a little limited, and they look terrible in a plan but look nice in the renders so you can ONLY use them for renders.
    I find in a lot of cases, if the item is relatively simple in form I model it myself and put a nice texture on it and mess with that texture BMP etc.
    If its a complicated shape I will try and find something online - I rarely use revit city as 95% of it is trash.
    Also by the way, IKEA has a revit family for just about every piece of furniture so it can serve as a decent base for lots of items.
    Depends on what you are trying to get your hands on though.

    I'd agree on their limited content. Really wished they had a better selection of vegetation. I would also agree that they look wretched in plan.

    It's a real pain, but for the enscape content i like and care to reuse, i'll spend the time to nest in 2D planting families that are aesthetically acceptable. Visibility of the 3D geometry is suppressed in plan, of course. Example below is our modified Enscape "Elm" tree, IIRC. One of these days, we'll compile a decent library of reusable content......right now it's kinda update as we go type of thing.

    Better idea is just linking the Enscape asset ID into your existing planting families - fast and easy
