I have designed an alignment for one of my project sites after importing site survey points in open roads. Now i am attaching an autocad file of features at the site.
The issue is that as i attached my cadfile its coordinate system changes.Its is not attached at same location as my designed alignment.
Hi Atif, Does the file have negative co-ordinates? If yes, you will have to set the negative co-ordinates in project settings in MX. The below link will help you set the negative co-ordinates: communities.bentley.com/.../28479.negative-co-ordinates Hope this helps. Do let me know.

Atif Ahmed said:Both are coordinated files.Can you be more clear about,what do you mean by working units.
coordinated does not mean that your DGN and/or DWG files have the correct units setting. So as we know WGS UTM now your working units should be [meter]
Check with Microstation the Menu/settings/design file/working units settings, first. Then check with AutoCAD the DWG files, if involved, settings with the commands INSUNSITS and LUNITS. INSUNITS must be 4 = [meter]
