Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing the survey point and project base point in Revit, part of Navisworks 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Combining Revit and Civil 3D can be a pain.…Normally it's not an issue, until you get to Navisworks.…In Revit, we have two site points…that are in there for us.…There's a survey point, and a project base point.…When a survey is done, the surveyor establishes…two points for us:…one is a benchmark location of the surveyor's choosing,…out in the middle of a field somewhere,…and the other is a corner of our building.…If there are more than one buildings on a site,…each building is going to have its own corner point, obviously.…Now, in Revit, the survey point is where the benchmark…location is, and the project base point…is where the building is.…
When we alter the survey point in Revit,…nothing really happens.…However, when we move the project base point,…our entire project moves to that point.…Since you should only have one live building in Revit,…you only have one project base point.…If you have multiple buildings on your site,…you're going to create a new Revit model…for each of those buildings.…
