Download or Create new "People" and "Vehicles" for use in Infraworks Styles?

We're just starting to look at the possiblity of using Infraworks 2014 for conceptual design and storyboarding.


I work for the Dept of Conservation and as such we do a lot of boat ramps (and associated parking lots), shooting ranges etc.  So it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to show a man wearing a suit in one of our parking lots (just as a simple example of why I'm looking for something new).


We'd like to either download (prefer) or create new "People" and "Vehicles".  One person might be dressed like a fisherman (with the typical fishing vest and pole).  One vehicle might be a boat on a trailer (or even just a boat that we can show on the river).


Is it possible to do this?  If so, can someone point me in the right direction?  I'm having a difficult time finding anything via google.

Some boat models, that might fit your needs, are already available within the 3D Model style catalog "Planes & Ships".


For adding custom 3D models to the style collection for using them as instanced models within your model (e.g. new types of people or boats), I'd recommend to clone an existing 3D model style and change the referenced model (click the ellipses button right to the model URI field and choose your 3D model use to use).


Hope this helps,
