Details at Different Scales

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it's possible to have a smaller detail set to 1/2" = 1', for example, while the remaining, larger details are set to 1/4" = 1'?

 

Is the solution to have two different .plan files with two different layouts printing at the desired scale to ensure my smaller details are legible? Is there no way to alternate from detail to detail drawing at the desired scale, and then bring that into layout while preserving their individual scale(s)?

 

Thank you.

You draw everything at 1:1.  It's easy and fast.

 

Depending on the detail and the annotation to be there to communicate things, you'll decide the scale for display on layout, and that scale will determine the annoset to use.

 

Superzoom details might need 1-1/2"=1'-0", most might use 3/4", but whatever, you'll always DRAW at 1:1, and annotate at the appropriate scale.

Multiple details can be drawn in CAD Detail windows and sent to a single layout page at what ever scale you want them to be.
