    Default Does your company use annotative scaling?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    My company currently does not use annotative scaling. All dimensions and text are placed in a layout.

    What does your company do and why?

    My company doesn't use annotative scaling either.. We have different text styles set up such as small=1/16", big1/8, bigger=1/4. They also practice putting them all in model space and then doing all the plotting from there. i have fought with them about the benefit of paper space several times and slowly converting them.

    We don't use annotative scaling. All is done in model space like e.mounir.

    We dont use them either. All done in model space. Would be very tedious to make revisions and then change dims and text in paperspace. Much more efficient for me to do in one location on the fly.

    I use annotative scaling, IN MODEL SPACE.

    Its really handy, saves me having to muck about setting text heights, dim scales and mleaders.

    Although I have sent some drawings to out glass suppliers.
    They cant seem to read the dimensions sometimes.

    It seems to be a random thing.


    I quite like them although our other draughtsman still prefers to 2002

    Hmmm...seems like I'm the only one so far who does his dimensioning in a layout.

    Mr. Steve, if I may prevail upon your experience. Let's say I have some multiline text, that is annotative, and I want it to appear in two viewports. What problems, if any, might I encounter? Let's say one viewport has a scale that is twice as large as the other.

    To the others who responded that they use different dimstyles and manage visibility with layers, doesn't this become a bit tedious?

    We don't use Annotative dimensioing either. I spent a couple of weeks earlier this year studying about Annotation and how it could improve our company. We currently use script files which atuomatically sets our text heights and dimension styles for us. We note and Dimension drawings in model space and xref everything into sheet sets in layout. I thought the annatation was pretty cool but just not practicle for us in our office. Script files work much better for us at this point.

    Can I assume then that you do not make use of layouts?
