Revit Export DWF Origin & Coordinate System

716 Views, 1 Replies

I'm exporting a Revit file to DWF for coordination purposes within BIM360 Glue.

The DWF format doesn't export the Shared Coordinates, but the Project Origin as 0,0,0. In there a way I can manually indicate whether the exported file will use the internal coordinates of the Revit project, or coordinates that are shared with other linked models (simialr to DWG/DXF units and coordiantes export options)?


This is incredibly frustrating when merging several AutoCAD based DWG files or Navisworks NWC files (with same insertion point) and one architectural DWF that appears roatated 90 degrees in the federated coordination model.
