Hi,

 

I'm about embark on setting up a campus project (or at least learning how to).

 

This will be a site revit model, and then another 5 buildings, in separate revit files, linked into the site plan.

 

Can anyone recommend some tutorials and best practice on setting up a campus project including sharing the co-ordinates.

 

This would be a great help

Thanks.

Look in the AUGI EDGE magazine for some good articles on project north and shared coordinates.  Also of course, read your HELP.

 

Since you will have 5 linked into one, I would have all the building files have their exterior shells on seperate worksets so that in the site file, these would be the only worksets on.

Thanks for that.

Can I ask, in principle, is it just a case of having the site plan in one file, at the correct angle to north and at the correct co-ordinates.

And then for each buiding you would draw it orthagnal to the screen in a separate Revit file at no particular origin (but at the correct height)

Then you would like the building into the site plan, and move / rotate it into place.

Is that correct?

I think the following is the easist way:

  1. Create your site plan in a file with true north up.  You can roteate the view at any time then to really work on it.
  2. Start a building project and link the site into it origin to orgin.   The site might be at a skew but don't worry about that. 
  3. Determine how this building will sit in relation to the site.  Maybe draw a reference base line.
  4. Now you can adjust so that all your views are orthaginal and everything will work with the site.
