I got the coordinares of 4 points that define the limites/area of a property.

How can I  creates points and move them to specific coordinates on Revit?

Note: I know I can do it on AutoCAD and then import but lets forget about that Smile



Do you wanna SKYPE Revit? Its quicker Smile

hi did you find a solution for this? everyone just suggests exporting it to autocad but i don't think that is a very good solutions. i was surprised that you couldnt just add a spot coordinate and type in your northing and easting and it move your object/annotation..........

anyone got any suggestions??

I would do this using the survey point and the project location point.  Once the survey point is located, the project point can be moved to each coordiante and a reference point can be placed.


I would rather describe the property using the property line tool.  Enter all the bearings and distance in the chart and your done.

I have a similar problem...


I am using Revit 2015. I have a topographical inserted and i have my building arranged and it is all coordinated, great. 


However the contractor has now given me 3 sets of coordinates for, electric, gas and water and would like them indicating on the next revision. 


How do i locate those coordinates? 


Again i know i can do this in CAD, but how do i do it in Revit. 


Am guessing this is a glaring omission so as it can be brought in as a 'feature' in a later edition so we upgrade...?
