If I scaled the diagram say in A4 paper then print this on A3 paper the scale remain the same?
lsp help for finding the scale factor of two selected objects! example: circle
jamesfui posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLhi.. need help on creating lsp that can: > find the scale factors on two selected objects & insert to dwg as dtext! example; ``````` select the two objects with different sizes; circle_1: diameter = 1500 circle_2: diameter = 1200 calculated scale factor for [circle_1/circle_2] = [1500/1200] = 1.25 if circle_2 is selected first, it will then be [circle_2/circle_1] = [1200/1500] = 0.8 ask for insertion point to insert the calculated scale factor as dtext on drawing! or just display on the command window or prompt it... thanks
Dimension Text Height too Small
caitiebe posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI am trying to dimension a 1/8" drawing (in model space) and the text height on the dimensions is so small it is not even readable. I have tried modifying the dimstyle to have an "Overall Scale" of 96 (under 'Fit') and a "Scale Factor" of 1 (under 'Primary Units') and vice versa, but neither is working. I have never had this problem before. I am working in AutoCAD Architecture 2010. Also, when i try to dimension this in paper space, the size comes out ok but it is saying a 6' line is 576'... I would rather dimension in model space anyway but what's up with this? I realize 6 times 96 is 576 but how do you get it to be the right length in paper space? Thanks!
