Hello, I'm using Revit '14!

So, one of my colleagues started a project simply by using an existing project and then modifying it (these are similar stations throughout the state). The biggest problem is that the elevation datums read the old elevation with ground level at 71' 6". The elevation for ground level for this particular station is 21' 0".

My question is how do I shift the entire model down 50' 6" without causing complete mayhem? I've looked around at other post and most of them are asking how to make the elevation datum read 0' 0"...and for the post that seem to be relevant about moving the entire project refers to changing the project location. So here is the kicker, when i go to coordinates - specify coordinates at point, and then select the grd flr, it says the right elevation at 21'!! I then tried position - relocate project, picked my grd flr datum and moved down 50.5'...seemed like nothing happened. I then tried to change the project base point...nothing.

My concern isn't just how to change the elevation datum to read 21'-0" instead of what it is currently at, but also understanding the difference between the coordinates from project location, to the actual project base point, or what relocate project does.

 

Our problem, other than having the elevations read wrongly, is that when we render we are getting really low sun angles because Revit assumes the station is higher than it really is relative to its latitude/longitude coordinates. Again though, I really just want to understand the differences and if there is a way to shift the entire project down 50.5’

 

Thanks yall,

Cheers!

Your HELP menu is very helpful.  You can move an entire project, search Relocate Project in your HELP.

WWHub,

That youtube video is perfect! Thank you. I just wasn't understanding the relationship between the project base point, coordinates, and survey piont when I first tried reading up on it, so that video helped connect the dots. 

 

Thanks again.
