Scaling Problems with Layout

Recommended Posts

grain

Using the Page Setup Manager I set a page size of A1 landscape. When I scale my model in Model space to 1:20 (a small bathroom drawn metric 2m wide) it appears about 4 times too big. What could I be doing wrong. The units in model space is metric. It was initially working but somehow I must have reset something. Any thoughts really appreciated.

Attach a copy of the drawing to your next post. Someone here will take a look at it.

Thanks 'Remark' i've just come across your advice to ensure the scale is set to 1mm = 1 unit in the Page Setup Manager. Solved!

Just remember the AutoCad Mantra. DO NOT scale in modelspace. Draw everything Full Size.
