changing levels

62 Views, 3 Replies

our building location needs to be revised, moving the building up 2 feet. I have tried changing the elevation tag which would normally have done the trick, however now I receive errors which say that certain items "can't cut instances of _____out of its host. These errors seem to be light fixtures hosted in the ceilings. Why is this happening? If the lights are hosted in the ceiling and the entire level is being raised shouldn't the hosted object move along with the host? How can I change the elevation tags and have everything act properly and adjust to the new elevation.

Thanks in advance

Not sure what you've tried, but something that worked for me was to go to
the elevation view and select ALL your elevations at once then use the MOVE
command, give it a vector and a value. Should work.

The recommended approach is to avoid moving individual levels but
1) In Level type parameters change Elevation Base from Project to Shared.
You will need to do the same for Spot Elevations as well.
2) Use Tools > Project Position/Orientation > Relocate this Project to move
entire project relative to shared (surveyor) coordinates.
