    Linked dwg File Positioning

    After linking in a dwg file, should I move the file to the survey point origin or move the survey point to the file? I seems that moving the survey point causes problems when rotating to project north because it rotates around the original origin regardless of where the survey point is moved? Is it possible to rotate around the new survey point position when using project north and true north rotation?

    Link in CAD file, move the CAD file to where your building model will be (ideally near the Project Base Point i.e. Revit Origin, between the 4 default elevation markers). Rotate the CAD file as needed to allow your building model to be orthogonal or mostly orthogonal to the sheet.

    After doing these, run Acquire Coordinates and choose the CAD file. Change the view to True North and you will see the view change back to the CAD file's original orientation. Change back to Project North to make the building model orthogonal again.

    That's the method I've been using for years. Using Acquire Coordinates after you have the CAD file placed and rotated the way you need it, will cause Revit to automatically put the Survey Point at the CAD file's origin point.

      Thanks PatrickGSR94, I think I have it now.
