I am having difficulty orienting my model correctly using the Export to AEC wizard. is anyone else having this issue? It seems simple enough, but no matter what I do the exported model is rotated 90deg. Any thoughts?
At last! I have researched and found the answer: http://help.solidworks.com/2017/English/SolidWorks/sldworks/HIDD_DVE_AEC_1_CORDSYSTEM.htm?verRedirect=1
As you can see, quite simply the x-axis is rotated 90°, so that the z-axis is in the vertical position as shown in the above image. This is because Revit and SOLIDWORKS do not share the same coordinate system. It would make sense when importing into Revit though.
Hope this helps,
