Option 2

The video below demonstrates what causes this error. Move all the AutoCAD entities to the area covered by the coordinate system assigned to your drawing.

Note: In South Africa, the Lo zones are 2 degrees, therefor all the objects must fall inside the strip -105 000 m and 105 000 m (measured from the central meridian which starts at 0,0).
