Property Line bearings do not match import text

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Work flow options?

An imported topo with property line converts well as dwg basic objects to vwx

But a vwx property line object traced over the imported line segments produces bearings that do not match the survey bearings (text blocks).

Others will work in vwx to generate a landscape plan.


Rotational difference is ≈17°.


So, I could:

Hide the vwx bearings? and paste in the imported text?

Rotate the vwx object so that the bearings report same as import?

       And, therefore rotate all the other imported data and vwx drawing objects over it.

Adjust the vwx internal "North"? but how do I do that?

Create/rotate a DVLP of the import? or of the vwx file with all the LA and Arch stuff?


Any experience or conjecture welcomed.

Is the file Geo Ref? The Vectorworks file?

No geo ref.


Also, I can use the rotation field in the prop line OIP, but then need to reorient. or rotate the source poly with the rotate tool from a known point, form the PropLine, rotate it back.  OR?
