It is recommended that the number of imported points be able to exceed 10,000 objects when creating a solid terrain model using imported points in Revit.

It is recommended that the number of imported points for creating a solid terrain model in Revit should be able to exceed 10,000 objects. When dealing with larger terrains, survey data often exceeds 10,000 points to ensure the accuracy of the terrain. Additionally, there are often characteristic lines during terrain surveying, which need to be drawn to ensure the consistency of the terrain model with the actual terrain. 













It is recommended to import points, accurately snap points, add feature lines, and import large coordinates by adjusting reference survey points when editing Revit solid terrain.

1. When editing the Revit terrain entity, you can modify the shape of the solid model by importing points.
2. When the terrain created is more complex but needs to accurately express the terrain and landform, it is necessary to create a dividing line between the points by capturing the points, and now it is difficult to capture the location of the points when there are many points. It is recommended that the points of the revit terrain can be styled and not so large.
3. When creating roads and mountain roads, the terrain needs to change greatly, and now the solid model is a little difficult to accurately realize the change of terrain and landform. Revit's auto-generated triangle faces are wrong. At this time, I want to have elements similar to the function of civil3D feature lines to achieve triangle surfaces without passing through feature lines to obtain accurate terrain surfaces.
4. I hope revit can manually modify the triangular edge of the solid terrain.
5. Now when revit imports XYZ with large coordinate values, it will cause the generated terrain to be far from the origin location. If I set up survey coordinate data, the imported coordinates are selected after reference measurement points. Revit automates conversions. If you set the measurement point X=100000.000, import the coordinate X=100010, and the value of the measurement point will be automatically subtracted to be only 10 meters from the origin.


In fact, the coordinate data measured in the field is tens or even hundreds of kilometers, while revit cannot support almost infinite range as CAD, and often requires data conversion when importing data to generate terrain. If only you can directly convert the origin according to the data of the measured point during the import. For example, the measurement data X: 10000.000, Y: 20000.000, Z: 500.000, set the measurement point to X: 9999.000, Y: 19999.000, Z: 499.000. After import, this point appears at the points X: 1.000, Y: 1.000 and Z: 1.000.
