Boss says text size should plot at 3/32" on my A1 sheet but the scale of the drawing needs to be 3/16"=1'-0".
It's been a while since I've run the CAD station here and need a refresher if anyone has one lol Thx.
Thanks for your question regarding figuring out your AutoCAD scales.
We did a newsletter tip a while back about
figuring out imperial scales here.
Basically, 12 is the number to start with when working with imperial units.
If you want your drawing plotted at 3/16" and need to figure out what your
text height in your drawing file should be, here's what I'd do:
For 3/16" = 1'-0"
