Hello,

I have this issue:

Some models share same coordinates that are quite far away from origin. Survey point stands at 000, project point at A1 grid intersection (some point on planet with many numbersSmile. I made this possible by acquiring coordinated from dwg topography. Everything works.

However, then I link IFC (there are no settings in link IFC dialog), it places linked file (exported from Civil 3D) much further than it should be, probably twice as far. I tried exporting my models to ifc and putting it in tekla bim sight – everything aligns perfectly. I even opened IFC in Revit in a separate file, checked coordinates, everything is correct.

I tried linking revit (with IFC open in Revit). Every possible insertion option gets me the same result. I tried to move project base point to know location (A1 intersection point). Had super difficult time. Revit can not move unpinned project point more than 19km. 

Am I missing something?

Is there a workflow for these situations? 

Thank you.
