    people silhouette

    Hi,
    how can I add transparent people silhouettes to Revit?
    I know I can add them with Photoshop, but I think its not efficient.

    Do you have any ideas?

    Well, you could simply create a silhouette family as a very thin extrusion. Apply a (semi-)transparent material to it and you're off.

      I use the RPC content and set the material for entourage and plants to a grey semi-transparent color.

        Wait, you can set a material to RPC stuff? Is it that simple, or do you need to explain the process to me? :laugh:

          You will to me sadly:

          - In the entourage type properties there is no material field I can see to change ("Render Appearance Properties" button does not give on to materials selection)
          - Tried altering the material assignment in Category under: Manage > Object Styles > Model objects (tab), but no joy.

          Any help appreciated.

            @dzatto check this The Revit Kid.com!: Revit Tip - Change the Color of RPC Trees
            You can use the method described by mdradvies and also set the edges of the silouhette to white for better visual impact and avoid them to mess with lines from the project.

              It would be great to know how to do this, if someone could explain - thanks.

                Sketchup has a bunch of silhouettes you can export to CAD and create static families from. If you use RPC Content they have the free creation utility that will create 2D objects that will face the camera. Otherwise I just set them to a transparent color as Scott mentions.

                  Go to object styles, scroll to entourage, set the material to a material that is transparent. Note when renedered it will still show the RPC not the material, so if its in a rendering that you want them, this won't work for you. But I do this for all trees and RPC's and it makes for great looking shaded views. If you want silhouette rendered people, open the rpc's, trace the shape with an extrusion, set a material, repeate.

                    Hey all,

                    All the lonely (revit silhouetted) people... Where do they all come from?
                    All the lonely (revit silhouetted) people... Where do they all belong?

                    I've poured through previous posts on here trying to find a link to download for free/ purchase simple silhouettes of people for general entourage. But I found... Nada. Nothing. Zip.

                    Do you know where all the silhouetted peeps are? I need them for museum settings - so I am looking for kids pointing at things/ teens reading things/ parents holding kids' hands/ adults looking intently at walls etc...
                    FOR EXAMPLE:




                    Anyone made any they'd care to share? Anyone bought any that weren't ludicrously expensive?


                    Cheers! CM
