Scale PDF of RM on angle

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to scale a PDF of a drawing which contains only dimensions of walls etc on a 30 deg angle?  Am I forced to find 90 degree dimensions to use?

I generally use a polyline box to reference the size of a dimension on an image or a PDF. Rotate the PDF to get an orthogonal line you can measure. Then use the box to establish the ratio, and then transform/replicate using the resize option in the DBX.

Johnny,

 

If I understand you correctly.

As Bill said, use Resize in the Transform/Replicate tool.

Draw a cad line over a known wall length.

The Resize factor is the distance shown in the .pdf divided by the length of the cad line.
