I am somewhat new to Revit I am bound to have many more questions come down the road. This program is amazing!! Ok now to the guts of my property line issue. I have included two images. The first is the actual plat to which I am basing the data to be input into Revit Property line menu. The second is the actual plat based on the coordinates from the surveyor. I doubled check my coordinates they seem to be ok. I am not sure about the radius/arc coordinates I tried the coordinates several ways when it came to this and no success. Any tips or ideas. Thanks in advance.

I have tried to use Revit property lines tool but also can't get it right. Unfortunately we have to do the property lines in Autocad then export it in & trace over it.

Enter data from a survey or deed is troublesome because very often the data isn't consistently referring to the bearing properly. In many cases a bearing of North is called out when the angle of the property line should really refer to South bearing. Usually I can fix this by altering the N/S or E/W settings of the troublesome segments. In the attached image you posted Revit is report inaccuracy of the survey data which says there is a bust in the corner. Revit is suggesting you choose the Add Line to Close option so it resolves the inaccuracy. Bottom line, you can't trust the bearing data implicitly. If you get a dwg file from your surveyor you can pick the property lines he supplies to sketch your property instead, which will at least match what he/she gave you.

I dont know if its a BUG but it acts that way. There is a big and inportant difrence between Sketch and Table Property lines. Sketch PL will rotate with your Walls and other objects when you rotate True North, Table will NOT!! Unfortunatly, you can convert Sketch to Table but NOT the other way around. So you CAN NOT create Table PL and expect them to rotate properly and there is no other solution I can see except to trace the Table with a Sketch, then delete the Table PL. I WISH THEY WOULD FIX IT!!!!!
