How to assign Coordinate System to a Revit Model using Autodesk Shared Reference Point

Hello everyone... This time I would like to share how using Autodesk Shared Reference Point for Civil 3D and Revit, you will be able to assign true coordinate system to your Revit Model and use that information to locate your building on a real content information model in InfraWorks 360 as well.
The Autodesk® Shared Reference Point extension provides functionality to export known points and elevation from AutoCAD Civil 3D to an external file, in which Revit can import and setup a ‘Shared Coordinate System’. This enables the collaboration of exported RVT, DWG and NWC files back to AutoCAD Civil 3D and to coordinate models in Autodesk Navisworks.
Key Features of this Extension
Autodesk® Shared Reference Point consists of the following features:
  • Two individual installations for AutoCAD Civil 3D and Revit
  • Export coordinates and elevation from AutoCAD Civil 3D to external .xml file
  • Import .xml into Revit based on same known positions and create a ‘Shared Coordinate System’
