RPC is a 2D and 3D content type offered by ArchVision for use in several different programs, including 3D Studio Max. There are models of people, cans and other objects that you can used to populate a scene without greatly overtaxing your computer power. To use these items, you musty install the plug-in for 3D Studio Max and then use the Archvison Content Manager (ACM) to locate the RPC files you have access to. After that, you have the ability to place these items in your scene. The process for doing so is quite straightforward.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open 3D Studio Max. Select "File" from the menu and choose "Open." Select the file that you would like to add some RPC content to.

  2. 2

    Go to the "Create" panel on the right and click on "Geometry." In the drop-down menu, choose "RPC."

  3. 3

    Go to "Object Type" and click on "RPC." From the listed RPC libraries that you have, choose the one you want to use.

  4. 4

    Select the particular RPC in the library you want. Then go to the scene and click and drag with the left mouse button to place and rotate the RPC. Save your work.
