Hi all, I’m testing out this great tool,
I was hoping to use speckle to convert a large site from Navisworks to Speckle to Revit , I succeeded to get it in but I suspect it is too far away from Revits internal point and the geometry gets all squished and broken
Do you have an Idea if I can edit origins from Speckle to Revit? any setting etc
Thank you for helping
You can adjust the origin in Navisworks to suit Revit, or if you have Shared Coordinates set up correctly, you can import “real-world” Navisworks data into Revit coordinates.
Adjustments in Navisworks:
Allows the user to specify which reference point should be used when sending data.
Available options are:
Model Origin (the default option) The
Project Base coordinate
Bounding Box origin
The XY Coordinate inputs are valid for defining the Project Base coordinate option.
Coordinate Units: Allows the user to specify the units of the coordinates sent to Speckle.
I covered this when the Navisworks connector was fresh out of the oven.
In response to some of the excellent demonstrations by
@Austral_BIM_Chile love on his Youtube channel, I wanted to share 2 things we have in place to help with the referencing of Navisworks into Revit.
Already available in the Revit Connector is the ability to modify the point where incoming content is placed.

This uses the Reference Point setting in Advanced settings on Receive. Whichever point you specify here will effectively specify a proxy for…
