LHB is dedicated to being environmentally responsible, reducing long term operating costs, and improving the quality of life for their clients. This is true even when they are their own clients. LHB is pursuing LEED® CI Platinum certification for their Minneapolis office.

In this project, RPC Content helps communicate the size and the new collaborative environment the Minneapolis LHB offices offer. The design features of the space, such as overhead fabric ductwork and LED lighting, are part of an effort to gain Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Platinum designation for commercial interiors from the U.S. Green Building Council.

We always enjoy seeing customer projects and how they utilize RPC Content. In this project, renderings were completed in Revit. ArchVision RPC Content was ‘ghosted’ in Photoshop and then merged into the Revit scene for final output. Project design by Bruce Cornwall, models by Nick Vreeland, and renderings by Daniel Stine.

ArchVision Software License Overview

ArchVision currently offers two annual licenses that give users access to all RPCs and plug-ins for 3ds Max, AutoCAD and Photoshop. The ArchVision Software License Floating (sold for $499/year) is portable and can be hosted on a network server to be shared among multiple users (one user concurrently). We also offer the ArchVision Software License Node-Lock version ($249/year) that enables RPC usage on a single computer. I have created a new video to show an overview of purchasing and activating either of these license types.
