Let us know if it worked out. Basically using exports from your modeling package and using align you re-create the original positioning or create helpers which are exact to visually help. This might not be enough for some people but might help most.
Although the align command is very effective for some cases, in our unfortunately, does not meet our real needs, I mean:
When the entities are aligned in the same coordinate system from which they were created, but if we move, rotate, or make any kind of animation of any of the entities, the issue is complicated because the alignment point of an entity, perfectly may be far from the entity. I remind you that we are working with very large institutions and smaller ones that must be aligned with each other.
Precisely for the above, I had asked for some kind of illustration with respect to the markers discussed.
There is an Arabic proverb that says: "If you stumble and fall, two steps forward," if we're seeing, I think we should follow the truth of this proverb and think that in future versions of Lumion, which includes the possibility precise animations, these should be preceded by some metric of motion to simplify the linking of imported entities.
I hope I explained well, I remember my poor English.
Note: I never tire of to thank all your effort and dedication. And any help you can give us about the above markers, sure to be welcome.
Thanks and best regards
