    placement of RPC Plants v. Revit

    Pardon me if this has been covered, but i struggle with at least some of the RCP plants' locations in Revit. As in there sometimes seems to be little relationship to the "footprint" location and the RPC location...

    You need to adjust the "elevation" instance parameter after you place them, most are slightly floating.

    Yeah, almost every RPC element needs to have a negative offset of after placement. Especially the vegetation. I usually use (-6")... People may need less.
