PLOT FROM MODEL SPACE: CHOOSING THE RIGHT SCALE

Autocad Plot scale : Here’s another Autocad Tip related to Autocad Plot Scale that’s most important to understand because that’s where most of them get confused with when plotting the drawing.

A common grouse I hear from students ..the plot preview is too small for the sheet size, else not fitting into the sheet.

Problem: Plot scale given is correct but drawing not fitting rightly…..

Solution: If the drawing units is in Meters , then while choosing plot scales with respect to the Drawing sheet sizes, here’s the what you need to do :

Divide the required plot scale by 1000. Eg 1:20 is entered as1mm is to 0.02 units.

When Drawing is In Millimeters, the plot scales are very clear, Eg. I want to plot in 1:50 scale, hence in plot dialog box I enter 1mm=50 units as shown
