hi, Using ACad Mechanical 2008 here, just wondering if there is anyone that can briefly explain to me the commands or etc that I need to use in order to draw very small parts, such like RECTANG .0995 WLish but so that they can be seen as much bigger lik 10x without channging DIMLINEAR dimensions. Basically want to draw small things bigger, without changing dimensions, so even tho the part is 10x bigger, when i DIMLINEAR or origin dimension the part, it still displays its true dimensions! Thanks. I notice if I try to scale the part up after I've already completed the drawing, the dimensions scale up too and defeat the whole purpose. there must be an easy way to correct this?
