Modification of coordinate system when exporting to Revit

Hello everyone,
When exporting from Forma to Revit, the coordinate system must be UTM84-xxx. Would it be possible to choose the different coordinate system when exporting from Forma (for example Lambert 93 for the France, etc.).
In this way, consistency between the .dwg plans from Civil 3D, the Revit file and the external plans would be facilitated and would not require transforming all the coordinates so that they correspond to the UTM84 system.

Thank you so much.

We do not have the ability to change the coordinate system on load from Format at this time, though we are gathering feedback on those requests.  This is our recommended workflow for working with that situation.  The link can be in whichever direction is most appropriate for your use case.

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.
