Does anyone have any tips on rotating Project North Slightly. I'm working on a house up in the mountains of MT. The client is wanting a good portion of the glazing to face Lone Mountain Peak. I'm about 30 degrees off. I've got great solar gain at about 10 degrees East of True South now. But, the client pays the bills (bieng a spec house, not the utilities). Any suggestions in case I can't pursuade him? Thanks Poppy

Go to a floor plan. Right click, go to view properties, set orientation to true north (not project north). Under the Tools menu, project position/orientation, select rotate true north.

I can take that route (Tools menu, project position/orientation, select rotate true north) and it will allow me to orientate True North. But, my True North Is accurate. What I'm wanting to reorientate is Project North alltogether. I will check again, and again, though. thanks, Poppy

Also, when you right in the viewport on any of the Floor Plan views, select View Properties> scroll down to Orientation> there you can toggle between "Project North" and "True North". I just can not seam figure out how to rotate all of the project while in "Project North". Anyone? Thanks (in advance) ! Poppy

Sorry, I meant to type "Right Click" in the viewport. Poppy

Actually, I am wrong—One, I just realized I completly repeated what was just said (sorry), and Two, I meant I needed to be able to rotate the structure ONLY. The site along with the grade I can work with as needed. Poppy

. Here is a great 6 minute video CADCLIP explaining the True North / Project North relationship / control and how the plan views can show one or the other.

I thank everyone for their support. In all my post I can understand my problem being unclear. DGCad, you have a wonderful library of knowledge. Your videos have been very helpful. I still have an unsolved riddle, though. All of the above answers seem to explain rotation of "True North". Unless I am blind (quite possible) or am just careless (??); I do not see explained anywhere how to easily rotate "Project North". It seems as though the only way to rotate "P.N." once it is drawn is to pain-stakenly select every component (family) and all ref. planes and rotate them? I think it might quite possibly be easier to convince the client to keep the current orientation (more solar gain) than to aim directly towards to snowy peaks. Poppy

To rotate all families would be a pain,really!why don't you rotate only the terrain? After do that rotate the crop view by the angle you want. I know it isn't the correct method but it's the fastest. let me know. -paolo

There is a way but you must contact your reseller or Revit support.
