Forum And revit coordinate

can I integrate the shared coordinates from a Revit file into the Autodesk Forum platform? This will allow me to correctly locate the project coordinates when exporting a forum model to Revit.

Here is our current guidance, which can be found at


Location and Georeferencing


Forma geolocation will overwrite any location data in the Revit file. The add-in will create a new Project Base Point in the Revit project matching the georeferenced system of the Forma project, using the UTM coordinate system.


Using Existing Georeferenced Revit Data


If there is an existing Revit project that you don't want to overwrite with location data, but want to analyze the model in Forma, we recommend the following workflow. Create a new Revit project, Load the Forma Proposal into it, then Link and Bind the Revit file into it. You can now use the Update Proposal functionality to send specific Revit data to Forma, make changes to the Revit data, and iterate.
