I have placed 600 sqaure light fittings (standard revit items) in a 600 square ceiling grid. This is how they appear on both ceiling plan view and 3d wire frame. I have had to move ceiling grid 300mm to bring central to room for even cuts, but this was before I did any renderings/raytracing or even added the lights. However, when I render, the ceiling grid does not correspond to the model ceiling grid and therefore lights are no longer on grid. How can I adjust the "render"grid to match the "model" grid.

This is a FAQ, You need to adjust the map position for the ceiling material in the accurender settings, it is a matter of trial an error really.

With scaling, map adjustment and a bit of educated guessing you can get it looking pretty good pretty quick.
