Import Master Plan

Hello, I am just trialing Spacemaker and I am wondering how I would add a 3rd party masterplan. Our project is part of a larger development on an currently empty site.


I have a DXF file with coordinates based on UK Ordnance Survey - so I reckon I should use OSGB1936. But when I try to upload as an asset I get just an error message: "Invalid LatLng object: (NaN, NaN)".


How can I get the masterplan into the project? I wouldn't mind if I have to place it manually.

Hello! I'm sorry to hear your import failed, the error message suggests you may have invalid latitude and longitude of your georeferenced DXF, if you believe that is not the case I suggest you reach out to the Product team directly using the in-product intercom chat. You will then get directly in touch with our product developers in charge of imports. 


Double-check that you are following the guide to importing DXF. (Note that the DXF import is a little particular about there only being 2d objects in the file):


An alternative is to import an image and use as reference to sketch over:


Or of course import your masterplan buildings as IFC or OBJs.
