View Full Version : Cad Import Automatically Rotates
2007-03-14, 10:38 PM
I am importing a cad detail into my Revit project as a drafting view and it automatically rotates. In Autocad it looks fine...ucs is set to world...nothing is rotated then I import into Revit & BOOM! Rotated! Has this happened to anyone before...HELP PLEASE!

Not the solution you were after, but can you not just simply rotate it back to its correct orientation within the drafting view?

I could, accept this detail is in every single one of our hundreds of projects...yuck, that would take forever...

Do it once, save it back out as an acad file, then re-import that file to the others?
Alternatively, I believe in 9.1 you can copy drafting views from one project file to another (haven't tried it myself yet, but I'm sure it will work fine....)
(BTW, I suspect the problem is something to do with the ucsfollow command in acad. Try typing it in, changing the variable, then set ucs to world and see what happens.....)
