Scale problem x-reffing between two files

Recommended Posts

Hi...having some trouble with a group of files I received from someone working for me and was wondering if someone can help me. I have a file that is x-reffed into another file. In both instances the drawing has the same measurements, but when I make a viewport in the receiving file the drawing (in the viewport) is 1000x smaller than it should be. It should be noted that I am working in metric units AutoCAD 2011. Any responses would be greatly appreciated. And if you know this to be a simple fix, please help me to understand. Thanks.

Your co-worker is probably working in Meters rather than Millimetres. Check out 'INSUINTS'.

I am aware of INSUNITS and used it to set both drawings to 0. I am not sure if this is the proper procedure, but I assume that being equal is the most important thing...

Sorry about splitting the replys, but I am new to this...I had tried that previous to posting and there was no change.

You could either changed the units of one of the drawings to match the other or scale the XREF.

INSUNITS 'Specifies a drawing-units value for automatic scaling of blocks, images, or xrefs inserted or attached to a drawing.'

 

http://docs.autodesk.com/ACD/2010/ENU/AutoCAD%202010%20User%20Documentation/index.html?url=WS1a9193826455f5ffa23ce210c4a30acaf-4f8f.htm,topicNumber=d0e348840

 

So in this case, the INSUNITS in your problem drawing probably wants to be set to '6 - Meters' and the INSUNITS in your drawing probably wants to be set to '4 - Millimetres'. This will automatically scale your X-ref by 1000.

 

Does that help?!
