How do I Scale up a Site Plan?


Recommended Posts

I have recently done a movie for a client driving through a community.

Recently the Site Plan has been redone to show the real slope of the land.

I keep inserting the "dwg" site plan with the topos, but the scale is wrong.

I realize the scale is wrong when I draw a street and the width of the street is bigger than the community.

I have tried scaling up the "dwg" before inserting, but the same thing keeps happening.

What am I doing wrong?

Oh, My! I am pretty sure that I set it as inches. Wow I am excited already.

I am going to try the new setting right now. I bet you were Right Joey.

Also I did have to spend some time going through 182 layers to find the 3

layers that I needed to import. I t takes a while for the compute to interpolate

I tried it with the feet setting. Initially it looked like it worked properly, but when I went to draw the terrain street,

the street was tiny. It was then that I remembered that I scaled up the dwg in the CAD file in order to try to get the correct scale in chief.

So back I go into the original file sent by the Civil Engineer to scale everything back down again. Another Hour and a half wait to complete

the interpolation. So I start the whole process again to make sure I get it right.

Hooray! I finally got it right.

Thank you all for you input and help!
