Geolocation export to Revit sizing situation, assist wanted – SketchUp

Hello I’m having a sizing situation when exporting geolocation topo file to Revit 2023.
Let’s imagine I choose a area that’s 500×500 ft from the Sketchup geolocation app, it imports the area i chosen into sketchup simply effective and I can export as a dwg file or so I feel. The issue occurs after I import the file into Revit it seems to be like I chosen a area a lot bigger than what I really chosen, ( unsure precisely how a lot bigger however about double so 1000x1000ft) however it’s crammed within the area of the unique choice so 500x500ft. I can inform this due to the topography has parts that shouldn’t be there within the unique 500×500 area and the situation snapshot can be of the bigger space a lot bigger than what I see in Sketchup.

Whether it is right in SketchUp, and incorrect in Revit, I’d guess there is a matter in your importing course of in that aspect of issues. Perhaps you possibly can share your file and another person can attempt importing.

Once you export a 3D mannequin your complete mannequin is what will get exported.

Verify in Revit that the items it expects for the import are the identical as you’ve used within the SketchUp mannequin.

I’ll double test the items however I’m fairly certain they’re each set to ft. Additionally any concept why the export file that I create in sketchup can be of a bigger space than I chosen within the choose area step? what I chosen within the choose area step and what I see in sketchup are the identical however the exported file is of a a lot bigger space as if I chosen a bigger part within the choose area step however it’s compressed in to the unique space dimension,

No concept. Which of the accessible providers did you employ to get the terrain picture? What exhibits in your SketchUp file? I’m not certain, however the areas is likely to be served as “tiles” that is likely to be bigger than what you chose. You can take away what you don’t need in SketchUp previous to exporting.

I exploit the sketchup perform discovered below File > Geolocation > Add Location

then I exploit the Choose Area button on the correct of the window that popped up. This imports my choice into Sktechup workspace

in sketchup I don’t see anyhthing apart from what I chosen doing this, however the exported file appears to be of a bigger space than I chosen

Okay. I consider I figured it out and it’s me largely being an fool. I used to be making an attempt to overlay a cloth in Revit onto the location utilizing the situation snapshot that’s saved when importing the geolocation knowledge into sketchup. This picture is of a a lot massive space than the topo knowledge you obtain. The topo knowledge was trying off to me as a result of effectively it isnt 100% correct and in my head it didnt match my property effectively however was in actual fact right. The picture then again was not and so I needed to trim down the picture file to match the realm of my topo (mainly eyeball what I see in sketchup and crop it right down to match) then use that because the picture for the fabric. And now all of that overlayed with my property traces in revit appears to match up fairly effectively.

Thanks for all of your assist!
