I created a drawing in Metric, from an Architect's print.
I finally received their drawing in a workable format, that I inserted the building I drew, into their drawing, both are in Metric.
For some reason, my drawing comes out HUGE in their drawing file. When I scaled it down, the building just didn't match up at all, even though all the dimensions were the same.
I really need help with this one quickly, if I could trouble someone to take a look at the drawing.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It was a real problem with Civil and Architecture too, one use decimal of a foot and one use feet and inches.
Only fix is to scale one the drawing (the one that don't use AEC)
That's the problem I'm having, I don't know what to scale too. I have two drawings, drawn in metric, to the exact same dimensions, and when I try to combine the two drawings, they don't match up at all.
I swear if this is an Autodesk issue I am going to be extremely upset. Do you realize how embarrassing it will be to go into my boss and just shrug my shoulders and say I don't know what the deal is?
I mean which drawing is correct?
Your archi uses meter, you're using mm
scale your drawing down 1/1000 ; it will mess up dimensions, if you can copy the dimension style from your archi and use it, it will be the same.
