    topo and model on different levels

    Hi all,
    I am new to Revit and stuck with my topo on sea level and model on level 00.

    My project is a small house addition and I was told that, in that case, was better to have the topo on the same file.

    How can I manage to have the house and topo on the same level? (level 00 should match the level 160 of the topo)

    If I relocate the project 160 up the topo also moves up.

    Thank you!

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Did you model the topo in another file and link it in?
    Or did you just model the topo in the same file, but in another elevation? Because then you can just move the topo up/down with the move modifier and then relocate the project back.
    But then again I'm not sure what you meant and I think you might have elevation and level mixed up.

      Hi ffkumb, That's a normal practice to have topo and the model in separate files, that way you are sure that all your coordinates X, Y and Z are correct, but its little tricky to handle, you must pay attention to the settings before you link your topo into your arch model, I do first set my arch model with the right Z that way when you'll link your topo it will be placed in the right place, I use the specify coordinates at a point (Sorry my Revit is in french but is pretty much the same thing)



      Once you do this you can link your topo into your arch model and normally it will be placed in the correct spot, hope this helps

        Thanks. I does help. But I need to change the topo. In that case I need to go back to the topo file and link the model there?

          Hello. I modeled the topo and the model in the same file.
          I modeled the house first and then the topo. I inserted the survey and created the points manually.
          Here are the steps for the image attached:
          1. Moved the site down -160.1
          2. Relocated the project up 160.

          Point 160.1 is now reporting 00 instead of 160.1

          I need the survey point to still show the sea level points and the house to show project point as 00 and survey point as 160.1

            Hi ffkumb, Nice one, thanks for sharing it :thumbsup:, for me model or not the topo in the same file it depends on the project requirements, but I know methods are very different in each country, regards

              Just change the elevation tag for the topo point and make it relative to the survey point instead of the project base point?
