exporting to Twinmotion, transforming coordinates and elevation

Recommended Posts

I have a project that is geolocated and set at the real world elevation.  Consequently, it's a long ways away from the origin.

This makes importing and working with the model in twinmotion difficult, if not impossible.  I can't drag the model down to the origin within TwinMotion.


Are there any tricks that can be done in vectorworks to resolve this?

Essentially, I would like to keep my Vectorworks file intact, preserving the layer elevations and site model's relationship to the real world position.


What is the best way to handle situations like this?

Our work around has been to make a copy of the vw file then move the model centred to the origin in x and y and lowering it so the ground floor is at z=0 then exporting that.


I would be interested in a better way however...
