I am having various issues when importing a Consultant's IFC model. He has installed the Graphisoft plug-in for Revit but it is bringing in a very recent version of our Building Model as well as Storey Levels that are not being used and finally their model is offset from our Origin point.

Any suggestions how we can get this working properly so he can provide a model of his M and E kit?

Well the Consultant has tried exporting again and this time it is all looking fine in the IFC file it's self but when imported and despite telling the Translator to use the Project Origin it has instead relocated his model using the Survey Point object

Bamboozling bit is I can not find the Survey Point object inserted in any of our Model files. Weird!

I managed to find the Survey Point object and now the IFC is coming in in the correct location however the Consultant still needs to correct his storey levels as it is coming in at the wrong height
