Revit 20 mile origin limit for imported and model geometry
You would like to know if the 2 mile limit still applies in Revit 2011 products for imported geometry or for geometric accuracy.
Revit 2011 products have increased the geometry range maximum to 20 miles total distance. This is achieved by 20 miles total distance in any one direction. The definition boundary would be comparable to a 20 mile cube in the X, Y and Z direction.
For Revit 2010 products this was restricted to a 2 mile maximum diameter. When attempting to import geometry greater than this 2 mile limit in Revit 2010 products the following error would occur and you could not continue:
For Revit 2011 products the limit has been increased to 20 miles. You will still receive the following error if attempting to import geometry over the 20 mile limit however you can choose to continue in 2011 products.
