Hello everyone! I am currently working on a project which is just entering a detailing/construction phase. Just where the fun begins - exporting and importing to different teams working with different kinds of software, clash detections and all that. In the course of the design phase, someone from the team (despite all warnings) moved the Project Base and the Survey Point away from their original position (on top of the hidden origin Point 0,0,0). Since the points are savagely scattered, we now have to move all elements to their original position. What I tried so far is to create a new project, attach the old one in it and bind it at the right position. Unfortunately, that didn’t work. Then I decided to move the geometry manually, in the old project.I selected all 2D and 3D elements from all views, unpinned them and saved the selection (25000+ elements!!). Since some elements can’t move in certain directions, “the move” wasn’t successful either. (I am still not able to pinpoint which objects don’t want to move and why) I hope there is someone out there who has done something similar and can share their thoughts and experience.

Thank you! The version Revit 2016. (no R2). 

Sub-question: Is it thinkable to get some Gauß-Krüger Coordinates from the geological DWG and move my survey point there? Every team should be able to find this point in their own software. The problem is, that my building is about 7km away from that one known point and it will be quite inaccurate for everyone to position their projects correctly. I'm baffled...

If you know the exact coordinates at a specific point location you can simply use the 'specify coordinates at point' tool under the manage tab/project location/coordinates dropdown
