Geographic Coordinate System

Hi, what geographic coordinate system does Forma use?

Hi @stefano.tesotti once you load your forma proposal into Revit via the Revit add-in use the Location->Manager in the Manage tab under the Project Location panel.

I got this when I tested for Las Vegas, Venetian. 

 

If this works for you, please mark it as a solution. Thank you.

If you don't have Revit, another way to see which coordinate system a Forma project uses is to export a proposal. The export will contain a readme file which states which coordinate system it is in (at least at the time of writing, the export is always in the same coordinate system as the project is internally).

 

Forma always (at the time of writing) uses a UTM coordinate system (with a WGS 84 datum) in the correct UTM zone for the location the project is in.
