The Revit 2020.2 update by Autodesk brought about a new feature in the “Site” category called the “Internal Origin Point”. Many people have noticed a 3D gimbal appear in their projects that weren’t there before.
New projects made after the 2020.2 update will have this turned OFF by default, however, older projects will now have this turned ON in every view.
Ideally, you would have it turned off in your office View Templates. This would turn it off in all of your views.
If you do not have View Templates set up, you would need to do this in each and every view, as well as new views that are created within that project.
You can also use Dynamo to quickly turn off the Site Origin Point in every view without having to open each one up.
You will need to download the “archi-lab.net” package in order to run the script.
Once downloaded, open your chosen project/s and click “Run” at the bottom left corner. Dynamo will find every view in the file and turn off the Internal Origin Point, Project Base Point and Survey Point. If you’d like to turn them back on, either go into the individual pages’ VG settings, or change the script to say “false” instead of “true”, run the script, and all 3 will be turned on in every view.
If you need help with the Dynamo script, please reach out to our support team and we can do so.
