Rmpt Posted February 7, 2016 Share Posted February 7, 2016 Please give me some keywords to solve the following: I'm using Autocad 2016, and drawing the bluepirnts of a house. Everything is measured in meters, so the unit is set to meter. The plan will be used later to construct a scale model of the house. 1/150th scale model of the original. What I would need: During drawing I'd like to "switch" the whole drawing to 150 times smaller, so all dimensions will be at the size of my scale model where I can measure or edit and then go back to the original size. Now I'm making a copy of everithing to a new file and scale it down by the suitable factor to get the 150 times smaller sizes that will fit to my later model. It is not a powerful way, everytime I change something in my original drawing I need to make a new copy and scale it down again. I hope autocad has a function for this, I've read about associative dimensions but I found it's not what I need. (or just I didn't understand it well) thank you for any ideas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
