I would have to go through the instructions re: driveway contours in their entirety to see what is being asked.

Thank u very much .I would really appericiate.

3. Also, Just use a standard Measurement when doing the U-Scan and binary Code thingy....Blocks are a very useful tool to use.
Remember, Its your Own scale, Make Symbols Have a Standard. Imagine Legos If you will.

4. I have just started into the graded projects for this course as well and I would have to agree that creating blocks has been the most frustrating and reward moments so far.

yes that too. Dont make them too complex, but always strive to make things simple in complex situations

6. Hi, I am having a very basic problem with the electrical drafting project. I have finished both plates and now ready to insert my title block. However for plate 1 they say use the title block at a scale of 1=1. Does this mean I cannot scale the title block to fit around the drawing, or do I scale down the drawing to fit in the 17x11 title block? No other project has stated this, so just a bit confused.

7. Hi Chloe
I am done with this course a couple of weeks before and have got 93% average scores.I guess the scale for plate-1 is 1"=1' and not 1=1.this dwg fits very well on that scale in portrait view and we do have some extra room left for legend etc.Whenever you need help please feel free to contact me at bhasinharpal@hotmail.com

8. Normally one draws blocks at 1:1 scale and not to a particular scale. When the block is inserted in a drawing a scale factor can be specified.

Agreed, usually all things are drawn in model space, and then you switch to your paper space. create a View port, add a standard title sheet , and then hand it in.

Penn-Foster does not teach the use of paper space layouts and viewports.
