Although you 'could' use the MCX "Convert and Place Object Wizard," it is not necessary when working with a 3D model imported from a Geo-located Sketchup *.KMZ file.https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/mdl-file-issue.444693/post-816367
Ok. I converted the file I'm trying to use into a KMZ format. I then used MCX's "Convert and place object wizard," and imported said KMZ file. When I clicked, "OK," it filled in Lat/Long coordinates. I checked an online Lat/Long converter, and verified that the coordinates was the same as the model I'm trying to import. Is this the right route to take here?
One can import the *.KMZ to MCX in "normal" mode (not via a Wizard ot other special tool), then:
1.) Click MCX toolbar icon for "Object Placement"
a.) Verify displayed location coordinates and related parameter values
b.) Click [Add] to 'commit' that placement to the pending BGL output file
Unfortunately, because the wizard is a popup screen, I couldn't use the Snipping Tool to capture it. The model I wanted was not in the 3D Warehouse page. The one I wanted has the actual helipad marking on the top of the building, which will help me place the heliport in ADE.
IIUC, you are looking for:
