Desperately seeking help here!!

Situation is:

Competition project, was modelled without any knowledge of the actual world coordinates since this information was not given in the competition, so the ground was set at level 0, and the building models on this level. Now, after having won the competition and having recieved an autocad drawing with the real world coordinates, we need to move the entire model (and everything in it!!) up some 15750 mm, meaning that our ground level at level 0, should now be at level 15750! I have desperately tried to do this, but I get so many errors, with every possible approach I have taken to this, that I am runnin out of solutions here!

I have tried:

- Locking the levels together, and changing the level of the ground from 0 to 15750... So many errors, deletions and crap, that it scraes the curse out of me!

- selecting everything I can get my hand on, and simply moving this selection up 15750... NOT WORKING!!! 

- using the "relocate this project" function, but it just leaves me with so much trouble ahead, since it doesnt "really" change the coordinates... it seems like its just "on paper" that the coordinates have been changed. Example. when I go to work on my site now, and put in the real world coordinates, it's as if the site is still on level 0!!! :-/

ANYONE!??? Please help! Is it not possible to simply change the projects basepoint (meaning the level 0 ground level), to some other coordinate!??

Help would be GREATLY appriciated!!!

Use the "Relocate Project", what do you mean with "Example. when I go to work on my site now, and put in the real world coordinates, it's as if the site is still on level 0!!! :-/" ???

Hi Typhoon

 

Well just realized that this thread has been started in the wrong category! SHould off course have been in revit building! Never the less...

 

What I mean with this is that after I have done the "relocate project", I go to my terrain, press edit, and I then try to set a new coordinate point, with what now should be the ground level (meaning level 15750), and it is added, as a huge peak, exactly 15750 above the ground... and off course I have made sure I haven't chosen "relative to surface"! To me it shows that the terrain is still located at level 0, and really haven't been "relocated to level 15750"!

 

Makes sense!?
