    Default Welding Symbols

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there a way to have the welding symbols when placed on a drawing be the same scale as the dimensions you are using? When I click on the welding symbol icon and place the symbol I then have to go through scaling the symbol to come close to what my other dimensions are.

    You need to create the symbol as an annotative block. Annotative block will adjust the size to your active scale.

    The symbol is already created within the welding symbol ANSI library. It sounds like doing the symbol then making it a annotative block is counter productive
