Architectual scale drawing tip

Post Posted: 24.08.2007 20:05

In order for your drawings to come out to a standard architectural scale you have to set your D-CAD-2D drawing scale to the correct size.
For one quarter inch to equal one foot the scale has to be set at 48.
Here is why (12" / .25" = 48), which is ¼" goes into 12" forty-eight times.
Here are some standard scales settings.

1/16" = 1' is 192
3/32" = 1' is 128
1/8" = 1' is 96
3/16" = 1' is 64
1/4" = 1' is 48
3/8" = 1' is 32
1/2" = 1' is 24
3/4" = 1' is 16
1" = 1' is 12
1 1/2" = 1' is 8
3" = 1' is 4

So when you want your 2D drawing to equal a standard architectural scale you set it to one of these values in your drawing screen view port properties dialog box. To access this D-CAD-2D window settings box you use command number 7-1 (in D-CAD-2D) and it is in third box down labeled view port. And on the line labeled: scale (1/?):

I have several different templates set up for 2D drawings and each one can be at a different scale so that when you import a single beam drawing into a new drawing created from a template it comes in at the correct scale.
This way if someone in the field needs a dimension and it's not on the drawing they can measure the drawing using a scale ruler and get the answer they need.
If you need help understanding how to create template at a standard scale let me know and I'll help you.
