Thank you in advance,

I am required to produced a 3D model which is reference to a survey point. The coordinates of the survey point are for example (1000000, 1000000)

I managed to move the survey point in Revit to this point, and reference my building, using the method outlines in this tutorial

However when I attempt to Link any CAD drawings the information in the drawings are Truncated, that is. the Information hits the Revit range limit.


Unfortunately the model at the end of the day has to be reference to the survey point, so that when it is combined with files externally (by an individual unfamiliar with the project) it will automatically be located correctly within a greater context.

The model also needs to be able to have CAD data linked in from consultants etc.

Do I need to setup a secondary site context file to georeference the file? so that my 'working' file is centered at 0.0.0 in the Revit environment?
