Setting the Scale

Scale is the ratio between real-world size of objects and items in your drawing and their size when printed. The default drawing scale is 1/4" = 1', meaning that 1/4" on your drawing plan equals one foot in real-world size (or 1:50 for metric meaning 1 cm = 0.5 m). You can customize scale settings at any time to suit your needs, as well as print your drawing to scale.
