2. Hello: I am just starting the Oleson Village Drawing and I am stuck right at the beginning trying to set the LTSCALE. Can anyone tell me how to calculate this as I have been using the reference in the text on page 374 (AutoCAD 2010) and my calculations I am sure is out to lunch. I have tried the formula Acad_scale=acad_plot/acad_size. For the sheet size of 24"X36" I get a plot area of 21.5"X33.5" (using the example in the book on page 375 as a reference) and a Drawing area of 15"X18" then when I try to determing the plot scale I get 15/10000000=0.0000015 I am sure this is wrong. The limits for the drawing are 0,0 and 10000000,10000000. So I am struck and do not know what to do. Could someone please direct me to the correct ltscale. Thank you!

3. i put my ltscale to 50 hope this helps

4. Thank You Firligic: I will try this...

5. I am not familiar with this project, although I would set ltscale to 1.

I second that...

7. With this project ltscale will need to be set at 50. Remember that Penn Foster does a few things different. This project will be plotted on 17.5x 11 sheets.

8. yea this drawing is in a very large scale

9. I am working on the Oleson Village assignment and I am trying to create the tree block. I have my units set to Decimal to reflect 0.00 and the angle to Surveyor's units. I am using a ltscale of 50. How do I create the tree with extents of 15 feet in diameter. I have tried to draw a circle with a radius of 15 feet. When I try to do this autocad will not except my radius. Do I have to reset my units to architectural to draw my tree block and then reset them back to surveyor's afterward. Also I have been trying to resize the point that is to be placed inside of the tree circle. I have tried using the pdsize command and used values of 10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100000 and the point still remains too small. I have tried using the pdmode command and tried setting the point size from 5%, to 10%, 25%, 100%, 1000%, 10000% and 100000% and the point still remains too small.
Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong.

What values were you entering for the PDMODE? It is a variable that sets the appearance of the point. Try putting in 3 or 4 and see what that looks like.
