Can you add pictures into Autocad, and control the scale properties?
Basically, I was told that you can take a picture of lets say, a piece of drilling equipment. Upload it into Autocad , scale it to whatever you wish, edit it, and know all the measurements without actually measuring the entire thing.
My colleague just measured one side, and uploaded the picture and found out all the other dimensions, without needing to sketch out on the field, and/or waste time measuring it, by just knowing that one dimension. He did mention something about line art I believe.
Unfortunately he is no longer working here, but I believe it would be essential to learn how to do.
Is this possible in Autocad 2012? If so, how?
