Darn those overly modeled Revit Families that I downloaded off that manufacturer's site. Suddenly your Project slows to a craw and your BIM manager is letting you have it.
In comes RPC. If you have Placed an RPC Family, you may have noticed how small these Families are and how well they Render. All they need are Masking Regions and some Lines to make them work for your 2D Views (construction documents)
The image below shows two Steelcase Think Chairs. The Chair on the left is the RPC (450K) version while the one on the right is the one actually modeled in Revit (850K).
Keep in mind that this could potentially mean a huge shift in how firms use Revit with thousands of new RPC Families freely available from manufacturers. One would still need an RPC software license to Render the content but not to use its 2D Views made of Masking Regions and Lines. RPC software licenses are currently $249/ year
