I opened a dwg site drawing and everything is positioned in xy according to their real coordinates. so its pretty far from the origin.
When i import it in archicad and i zoom in, several artifacts appear, lines get all broken.
Also if i draw a wall or any archicad object on top of my dwg, if i try to select them after you can see what happens in the attached image. Also if i render, it appears to be broken.
this has happened before and i still dont know how to fix it. Any ideas?
The behaviour you are seeing for objects far from the origin is normal.
I understand that all objects should be within 1,000 metres. from the origin, and absolutely nothing further than 10,000 metres.
You need to fix this by defining real world coordinates in your Project Origin. Usually I get a known point from the site survey drawing and place that in the ARCHICAD model at or near the Project Origin, and locate the building relatively accordingly.
thanks for replying!.
So i have a known survey point in my dwg.
i choose this to be my origin point in Archicad, correct? so i paste my dwg in Archicad and drag it from that survey point to the origin point.
and the project location coordinates in Archicad must match that survey point.
Did i get this right?
You were right, there was something wrong with the origin, now its fixed, coordinates show up correct but the precision issue came back.
Here is the file, please tell me you see the problem as well, i hope its not a software issue.
