Archicad 26 to Lumion 12 Origin problem


Hi! I've been working with a file in Archicad 26 and importing it to Lumion 12.

My problem is that Lumion is using a different Origin point than the one I have in Archicad and it is far away from the model. (The origin point on Archicad is close to the model).

Also, when I try to re-import the model it doesn't recognize the last model location so I have to re-locate the model every time, and with the origin so far away it is becoming a real issue.

Can someone help?

Have you found a solution?

I don't use Lumion, so don't know how it references the Archicad file.

But check the location settings (Longitude and Latitude) are correct.

Also turn the survey point on in Archicad and see where that has been set - I have no idea if Lumion will use the survey point as a reference or not.
