Allplan Practical Knowledge Large Coordinates
Regardless of whether you create 2D drawings or model complex data, you always work with coordinates in Allplan. Everything you enter is based on the global origin with the coordinates (0;0;0).
The further you are away from this global point, the slower the program and the less precise the calculations. It becomes critical when coordinates are more than 5,000 meters away from the global point. In this case, we speak of large coordinates.
This document shows how to handle these coordinates. In the following sections, you will learn what causes large coordinates and what effects these coordinates have on your projects. In addition, you will find out how to avoid and solve any problems you may have with large coordinates.
