Can't see my model after importing from the equipment library

Hi! When I import any library 3D object (cranes, excavators, etc) I don't see them among my IFC files and FBX. Then to see anything, neither my models, I have to unload the crane from the 3D objects list to see again my models. And if I unload all my models then I can see the crane. I think it could be about coordinates of the objects maybe, but I don't know how to move the crane to my site because I can't see all together.




Thanks in advance!

    The models in the equipment library import by default to 0,0.0 coordinates. Before importing the equipment, you can determine thelocation of your other models by

    1. Enable the Snapping toolbar and make sure that Snap to Vertex is enabled

    2. Right click in 3D window and select Measure Distance

    3. Hover over the corner of an object until a tootip appears with the point coordinates

    4. Press Esc on the keyboard to exit the measurement tool

    When importing the equipment models, on the final screen of the Import dialog you can enter approximate coordinates near where you want the equipment to be located:
