Multiple Hotlinked Modules Project - Survey Point - Revit Sharing

Not applicable
Hi All.

This is my first post in the forum. we have a Large project in office of 192k Square Meters aprox. The project consist in 5 Towers, each tower has been modeled in separate PLN files, then we have to put them together into a single Site PLN file.

Im trying to understand the use of the survey point, just to share information via IFC within ArchiCAD and Revit, but the point is that our Survey point is about large coordinate distances, ie. X 1,612,099 Y 501,682 Z 1,585, that is a very large distance to input into the project. (im refering to this information source: .

The source says that is not recomended to set up distance longer than 1KM. in that way, our project is far beyond.

The final question is:
  • How do you recomend (in your experience) to work the survey points for this project in particular? Keep in mind that this would need to be set up in each module file just to export them as IFC to import them into Revit keeping the coordinates. What we want is to share each building or tower with a correct survey coordinate for the others can link each one correctly into Revit.
I'm attaching an image about the survey coordinates, and the plan for you to get an idea of the project size.

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Welcome to the forum Rodrigo.

Sorry I don't have an answer for you as I have never had the need to use the survey point.

I have moved your post to a more appropriate section of the forum.
