Import Rhino to Revit using Shared Coordinates


Our team is working on a streamlined workflow between Revit and Rhino. We want a base point to align different Revit models and Rhino models together and we decided to use the shared coordinates as the base. But when importing Rhino to Revit, Revit seems not able to use the world coordinates in Rhino as the shared coordinates. Is there a way to make Revit do this?


Are you using rhino inside revit?

Hi Haochen - ModelBasepoint in Rhino may help.


Thanks, Kyle for your response. I’m not familiar with rhino inside revit, but it’s our next step. What function in rhino inside revit can do this?

Hi Pascal, thank you for your response. I tried ModelBasepoint but Revit still keeps giving me this notification.

Shared coordinates are a Autodesk function.

You can acquire and transform your Rhino Geometry to the shared coordinates using Rhino.Inside.Revit.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks, Japhy! Looks like using Rhino Inside Revit is the way to go.
