    Planting missing, appears as grey cubes, a known problem

    Revit provides out of the box planting, embedded in the Architectural template, planting made by a 3rd party: Archvision. Worked fine in Revit 2016, nice trees. Not so in Revit 2017, the RPC's of the third party were not loaded during Revit installation. Common problem, so I switched to Revit 2018 to see that the problem is not solved. When the work of Archvision is no longer a part of the Revit package, then why is it stil a part of the Revit Architectural template? I suspect that Archvision is no longer a part of the Revit installer. If so, Autodesk should make clear that we need to purchase the planting seperatly. I am in debate with Autodesk and Archvision about this. In the mean time I just plant other plants from other lybraries.

    The plantings that come with Revit should render just fine, as they do not require an archvision license.

    If they are not rendering I suspect something is wrong with your material library or you are using Revit LT which has to be rendered in the Cloud.

    First statement is true, it should be 'in the box'.
    Second statement is also true, but more refined: it is not a material. Sometimes the RPC's do not install on some computers, and I am one of them, according to Autodesk. Worked fine with Revit 2016, failed in Revit 2017 and is not resolved in Revit 2018. Maybe in Revit 2019, but I heard of other mayor problems with that, prblems with userfunctions from 3rd parties, and the out of the box planting is indeed from a third party. I am in 'full contact' with Autodesk and Archvision about this issue and a solution is not yet found. When found I will share it with all of you

    No lite versions, full versions, licenses of Revit 2016, 2017 and 2018. I know about cloud rendering, I use Autodesk A360 a lot. In the old days the software guys came with patches to fix things. Nowadays I need to surf the internet to ask the Revit community. A bit odd. It is clear that something went wrong, and I am not the only one, but neither Autodesk, nor the 3rd planting party has an answer(yet). The answer and solution will come, and I will share it with all of you.

    Works fine in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, here.

    EDIT: In case it matters:

    All Windows 10 1803 here, as well.

    Current builds on our system:

    2016 R2 SP7
    2017.2.3
    2018.2
    2019.0

    Dont have all the service packs pushed yet, obviously. But the OOTB Planting RPC's all work fine.

    By chance, did you do *install now* from the web site, instead of building a deployment?

    I suggest logging in with a different username on your workstation and try again...maybe something is wrong with your profile.

    Alas, no go. It makes no difference between placing a tree by topo component or by Architectural component when they are the same components. I appreciate your thinking with me, that is what we aim to do as users. I will proceed with deep contact, close encounter, with Autodesk and Archvision. F.e.: Archvision did not know that downloading their .exe files highly depends on the choice of browser. Also much O.S and iOS. No one to blaim. The cause is yet unknown. The problem accurs with some users, and I for one, want to find the cause, to help myself and other users.
    I will inform.

    My workstation is mine. No other users. I am the only administrator.

    Yes, I installed 'now' from the Autodesk site, same as my Revit 2016 that worked fine. What is building a deployment?
    Could it be that I just need to reinstall Revit 2017 and 2018 in another way?
