Hey, I need to match lat/lng-coordinates with two georeferenced stl+dwg-files that I have imported to rhino. How to recreate my problem:
Import the stl+dwg file into rhino. My document-units are meters. The two data sets should be positioned perfectly on top of each other. Those models have reallife coordinates around 47.8932741 / 12.154348 (lat/lng).
I need a grasshopper component that converts the above mentioned coordinates to the perfect position on the imported models.
I´ve tried Heron and set up the “earthanchorpoint” and used the “Decimal Degrees to XY” —component. But the converted XY-Point never creates a point near the imported geometry (not even close). What do I miss? Thanks a lot!
I’m not familiar with reference systems but I would hope there is something to have your CAD model at the origin instead of so far away? In other words, a way to say “the origin for a specific model is lat/lon”.
P.S. Sketchup Pro had this feature 15+ years ago, including integration with Google Maps/Earth so models could be seen in their actual location. Many people submitted Sketchup models of buildings all over the world that were officially added to the 3D mode of Google Maps/Earth.
@Erik_Beeren Thanks! I´ve updated Heron to match it with your components. I understand that you first have to find the correct CRS-System which in this case would be EPSG 4746 because the source points of the bounding box match the transformed point in EPSG:4326. Got it. But how can I transform the lat/lng coordinates to the correct point knowing that the EPSG is 4746? I´ve tried to set the Spatial Reference System to 4746, and used the Decimal Degrees to XY-component but the calculated point lays on the origin 0,0,0 point and not anywhere near the drawings I don´t get it. Sorry.
@Joseph_Oster Well I guess the point about models that are far away from the origin is that they are georeferenced. E.g. when I import two datasets from different entities like Terrain and LOD2-buildings both datasets are imported perfectly and matched in terms of position. Obviously it makes sense to move them to 0,0,0. But in this particular case I needed the transformation without moving the model. The answer of Erik uses Heron.
@Erik_Beeren It worked perfectly! I´ve also tried a different location and its perfect. Thank you so much! You even send me a heart, aww :)))
