Help!  I have been beating my head against the wall for quite some time on this issue so I figured it's time to admit defeat and ask for help.  How can I get my site points to display as absolute elevation and not relative to Project  0'-0"?  I know how to set the Datum Elevation, and how to get the levels to display one way or the other, but no matter what I do the topo points want to be relative to the project which makes it difficult to build a site from a civil plan.

 

Is there a way to switch back and forth with the topos similar to what we do with the level display?

If your project elevation first floor is actually 0'-0" then sounds like revit is working perfectly. In order to get real elevations you will have to set the floor elevation accurately. I doubt that the actual floor elevation of your building is at sea level. Keep in mind that you are building a model of the real world.

I guess that is the root of my question - I have set my floor level to 407.64 feet.  I thought that would mean that when I build topo points at similar elevations (ie 400 thru 420) that the site would be near my building.  However, Revit is putting the site 400 feet above my floor level, ie 800 feet above sea level.

When you set topo points are you using relative elevation or absolute elevation. I am using 2010 now and it has in the ribbon an option relative or absolute, and I looked at some of my projects and I set an elevation of sea level 0'-0". This also helps with walls and such on the site as you can gauge everything from sea level. Hope this helps

you may also in an elevation view select the toposurface and move it down say 407.64 feet.
