Import CAD - Orient to View

Revit OpEd

The World Coordinate System (WCS) is used to orient the CAD file in the view. If the current view is set to True North and True North is rotated away from Project North, then clear this option to align the CAD file with True North. If you select this option, the CAD file will align with Project North regardless of the view orientation. Note: CAD files are always imported into the current view from the top view direction.
