BUG

Geometry is incorrect when the units of the Revit file are set to Decimal Feet

Last Published: December 1, 2020

Description

Geometry is incorrect when the Revit® units are set to Decimal Feet. This issue affects the location and scale of a feature, as shown in the following image. The values are reduced by one-third from the original value of the model, making the relationship 1:1/3 instead of 1:1

Cause

This issue is caused by an incorrect enumeration.

Workaround

With access to Revit

  • Change the units from Decimal Feet to either FeetFeet and Fractional inches, or Fractional inches.

Without access to Revit

  • Change to a projection that uses meters as the units instead of feet.  
  • For example. Instead of using NAD 1983 (2011) StatePlane Ohio South FIPS 3402 (US Feet), use NAD 1983 (2011) StatePlane Ohio South FIPS 3402 (Meters).
