My design drawing is in world coordinates and datum elevation, but I need to be able to quickly export the design to a local site grid and elevation to send to another consultant company.
I've managed to set up a named UCS view so I get the proper X,Y and Z for the local site grid and elevations, but when I try a simple export it resets the drawing back to work coordinates.
I figured out a way i could do it by having a secondary design dwg set to the local site grid coordinates and elevations, but that is more work then I want to do.
Does anyone know a quick and easy way to get my "site grid" named view drawing to export properly so the coordinates stay at the site grid? Is there another way to do it without setting a named UCS?
If you set up a paperspace viewport oriented to your UCS. You can then go into that viewport and WBlock the drawing out. It should then be in the local grid. That doesn't do anything about the elevations. Would opening the resultant drawing and using the Move command work?
If you do use the Move command remember to move the items that define a Surface but not the surface it's self.
