Advice 1: How to change the drawing scale

Designers, constructors, engineers often have to change the scale of the earlier drawings. For experienced artists — it's a simple task, however it is beginners are often baffled.
How to change the drawing scale
To scale the drawing, use a graphical system, the main of which are: "Compass-Schedule"; AutoCAD; "Verison"; TopCAD; "Basis". Also used MATCAD, ADEM, CREDO. In practice, one often normal users are using "Compass", which is not very difficult.
Run the program "Compass" and download the modified object. Originally created in the new drawing has a scale of 1:1. You can verify this by turning on the option "build Tree" ("View" → "Tree building"). Displays the name of the drawing and its location and name, the number and types of the used scale. The current view is marked with the symbol (t).
The view scale can be changed at any time in the above-mentioned "Tree build" by right-clicking the form and choosing the desired zoom.
When developing a new graphical drawing, you need to create a new view ("Insert"→ "View") and select the desired scale, the value of which when required can be entered using the keypad.
In the "build Tree", you can verify that a given species has become current and it is already possible to perform graphics work. Please note that the drawing is in scale 1:1, and the program automatically converts it into the specified.
Manually scaling takes a significant amount of time and requires essentially the construction of a new facility. Use for convenience, with pen and paper.

Apply reference points and lines on the sizes of the altered drawing. From them count the desired number of cells is greater or less than (inside drawing) side. Set the new reference points with a pencil and follow the drawing. You will get the same object, but in scale.

Advice 2: As in autocad to change the scale?

Even some advanced users of AutoCad do not quite understand properties of scaling, and as a result, are not able to enjoy all the benefits of this tool.
Scaling in edit mode of the model.

How to use the zoom tool

The zoom tool is designed to resize elements or groups of elements in the AutoCad drawing. This tool is required to display the individual elements of the drawing with different degrees of detail. To increase or decrease the size of the object using the scaling, you can:

- enter the command _scale command line, in the Russian versions use the SCALE command";
- call drop-down menu from the item Menu, choose the Scale tool;
- click on the corresponding icon in the main ribbon.
- context menu right-click and choose Scale.

How to set the scale for the object

To set the scale in two ways. The first is to introduce the relevant scaling factor in the text box that appears when you activate the Scale command, and click after entering the values press the Enter key. Of course, this value need to know in advance, otherwise the operation will have to be canceled and done again. The value of the coefficient you need to enter relative units. That is, 1 is the current scale, 2 - zoom in and 0.5 - decrease the object twice.

If the exact value of the scale factor is unknown, you can edit the size of the object "by eye" using the second method. To do this, after activating the command zoom move the cursor to the center of the object and hold down the left mouse button to pull from the center to the edges, which will increase the scale of the object. To scale down, pull not at the center of the object, and behind it a visible border and back.

Global scale

Depending on the set parameters the scaling of the objects in the viewport may behave differently when approaching or removal. Settings global edit mode models are specified in the type selection window lines. As in object scaling, the global scaling factor is tied to the unit.

In edit mode, sheets can be individually set the scale for each viewport. To do this, open the properties of the viewport by double-clicking on its outline and select the appropriate value of the annotation scale. If the sheet multiple viewports, each of them will display the set scale. This is the best way to set scaling when you view and print the drawing.
