library part reversed

Not sure where we downloaded the object, but the elevation view is reversed from the plan view.  I don't know GDL, but guessing/hoping its an easy fix in the code somewhere.  Can someone help? TIA

Are you sure it is reversed?

You're correct Barry, not reversed but offset by the dimension of the object   I've realigned the screenshots so that the marker limits match the elevation and a screenshot of the plan view with marquee limits and corresponding 3d window.

It looks like then, that there is an extra or missing 'ADD' command in either the 2D or 3D script.

It is hard to say exactly without having the object or seeing probably just the first part of the 2D & 3D scripts.

If you are able and permitted to post the object here, you can attach it as a .ZIP file.

Otherwise take a screen shot or copy and paste the first 10 or so lines of the 2D & 3D scripts - you should see some ADD & MUL commands.

See attachment.   Looking at the object and the authors name, I'm fairly confident the object was downloaded from bimcomponents, so it should be part of the public domain.

There is no 2D script which means it is using what ever has been drawn in the 2D symbol window.

Open that 2D symbol window and drag what is drawn to the same position as it is modelled in 3D.

i.e. the lower left corner of what would be the bounding box is on the origin.

Save and it should be good.
