    Site Accessories - Cars

    I'm in need of some non-RPC site accessories, in particular vehicles. The final product will be run at either medium or fine detail and shaded (hence no RPC). I've looked through RevitCity and TurboSquid and what I've found is either a CAD import with lots of extra crap in it or crazy exotic vehicles that would be pretty out of place at a retirement home. I sent an email to Revitcars.com but their site is currently down so I don't know if they will even see it.

    Anyone have another resource for normal, 3D cars that would work at a shaded level?

    Last i checked, Revitcars.com was just 2D Detail Components. The only other option i know of, is the 3D DWG imports, which will look triangulated to all heck, but you can find about every car imaginable on accustudio and a bunch of other websites.

      some (!!!!!) of he content on Revitcity comes close to being decent... But it's going to be a trial and error thing.

          Its a neat attempt, but itse a far cry from being a regular revit car. Youll loose a lot fo the materiality and the detailing on the DWG cars if you do that, since it gives you one layer, and one material because of it. And its a ton of work to do that to the library of cars, at the end of which it is still a Linked/Imported CAD vehicle.

          As heavy and performance degrading and obnoxious as they are, if you dont have RPC, the DWG vehicles work well. They have layers and materials on all of the different parts of the cars, so lights render correctly, and rubber, and chrome trim, etc. I did an entire parking lot with the ones on Accustudio, and did renders from the parking lot, with MR. Worked reasonably well.

              You can also import a sketchup car from the warehouse and insert it into your model or family...

                I was trying to avoid bringing in SU stuff. I didn't think about bringing them in to a family though. Would that help with the extra junk that comes with SU & CAD files?

                    Nope, the junk will still be there. To avoid the junk, create a new project file for your renderings/3D Views, link you building(s) and site files to the rendering file, and use the rendering file to place all the SU & CAD junk, which is only needed for the renderings (or shaded views) anyway, right?
