I'm trying to set coordinates in a Revit model so I can bring the model into ArcGIS Pro without having to manually georeference it. I followed the method in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ap57raSTPx0) and it worked perfectly for a building in Newark, New Jersey using WGS 84 / UTM zone 18N coordinates. My issue is when I try to do the same process for a model located in Wellington, New Zealand. I have tried NZGD2000 / UTM zone 60S (EPSG:2135) as well as WGS 84 / UTM zone 60S (EPSG:32760). I have also tried every combination of negative northing and easting values when specifying the coordinate at point in Revit, guessing that the data being in the Southern Hemisphere is tripping up Revit, Pro, or both. ArcGIS Pro understands that the model's spatial reference is whatever PRJ file I have packaged with the RVT file, but the model does not display and zooming to the feature just sends me to 0,0.
