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

Last Published: December 1, 2020


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


This issue is caused by an incorrect enumeration.


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).
Esri is working with the third-party vendor to fix this issue.
