Drawing position.


Hi everyone

I have converted a AC23 drawing into an IFC file months ago.Last week I was asked to make changes so I opened the PLN file with AC25 my latest version and converted to IFC.

In Solibri I have the old IFC and the new one which is miles away and rotated with an angle. Is there an easy way to find the original place and angle with AC25 ?

Thank you for reading.

Best regards.



Archicad 25 has the survey point origin built in to the software whereas 23 didn’t. When you export the IFC which option do you use in relation to the reference point?

Thank you Lee for reminding me the different options for the model position.

Have a good day 😉
