If the DWG is not in the right location, always ask the stakeholders to send a new file updated with the local coordinate system. This is due to it’s their delivery which the other stakeholders shouldn’t edit.


But if it’s ok, or in a rush, it’s possible to manually update the DWG. For this to be possible it’s necessary to have an AutoCAD LT or AutoCAD. DWG TrueVIEW doesn’t work.

The project (DWG) must have a known point, where the coordinate 0,0 should be in the project. Could be an X or something similar in the project.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Check the coordinates in the DWG, to check whether the entire project has the right coordinates, or something is “out in space” far off.

 

In the command row, write ID.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To move the entire model, use ctrl + A to select every object in the model.

 

Check if there is a solid square out in space, this would suggest that something is far away. 

 

Otherwise use Move by typing M, and snap in the center of the local origo (the X in this view)


---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Move the cursor a little bit and write 0,0 and enter.

 

If this doesn’t work, make sure dynamic input is turned off. See below.

Note: Make sure that dynamic input is turned off.

This button should be turned off
