You can find the Undet Coordinate System settings at: Extensions -> Undet -> Coordinate Systems.

Also at “Undet Project Managament” tool box. 

Coordinate system management

If your Undet project scan data files are in a large / state coordinate system (for an example UAV, Airborne LiDAR), when opening a project in SketchUp a pop-up will request to Shift the project (0,0,0) point. 

System nameHere you can choose different coordinate systems. You can change your project coordinate system at any time.
Shift from start and rotation anglesYou can manually insert these values to shift and rotate your project.
[Move Point Cloud] – Manually move point cloud.
[Rotate Point Cloud] – Manually rotate point cloud.
[Restore Coordinates] – Restore original coordinates values.
Note: If you move and close an Undet project, the manually inserted or moved coordinate transformation values will be saved.

For example: if you try to open an Undet project in a large coordinate system, Undet will suggest shifting the point cloud data to coordinates (0,0,0). You will be able at any time to change the coordinate system from (0,0,0) to the original with large numbers.

We do not recommend to create deliverables using the point cloud in a large coordinate system. It may cause errors in the modeling tools and start screen view glitching while zooming.
