  1. I just want to print a CAD drawing according to some required scale. Please help me I have never done this before. I needs some hint. 1:1 1:2 1:3 1:4 1:5 1:10 1:100 Another thing what if I convert the drawing having specific scale into PDF format and print it. Are the scale remain same? If I scaled the diagram say in A4 paper then print this on A3 paper the scale remain the same?
  2. hi.. 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
  3. I 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!
