12.2 True North / Project North

2 minutesread

FenestraPro reads orientations directly from the True North setting in the Revit file.  If Project North is rotated for ease of modeling, the application will continue to provide correct orientations.  It is important to set this correctly as it will affect the Solar and Daylighting results as well as Shading.  You may rotate True North in Revit so that the model is correctly oriented on site.

Adjustment of the True North Setting in Revit – this should be defined correctly

The True North angle may be checked in Revit to see if it has already been rotated

 FenestraPro orientations will be consistent with Revit 

The compass and cube in the application will follow that in Revit.  If True North has been rotated, the cube and compass will not align (‘Front’ normally aligns with ‘South’).

True North may be set (once you are in a plan view in Revit) and the orientation is set to True North (instead of Project North).  You may then rotate the angle in Revit if required under the Manage Tab – Project LocationPositionFenestraPro will provide orientations based on this Revit setting.
