I am working on a profile of a ditch and I want to create an enlargement of a portion of the profile. What I would like to do is shrink the vertical scale of the portion of the profile I want to focus on, creating what looks like a streched view of the profile.
This can be accomplished by creating a block and shrinking the Scale X, but is there any way to do this feature with a viewport? (Creating a block of the profile isn't the solution, especially if I need to edit it later.)
If not with a viewport, is there any other way I can do this?
C3D is the program for it, with plain Autocad? Yes you can.
Through the viewport, set UCSFOLLOW , use command UCS and rotate X axis to a rotation to make to scale of the vertical. (It'll take a calculation, but it's not that difficult)
If you are not using Civil 3D, then what is wrong with using a block? You can keep the original 1:1 geometry intact and edit it accordingly, and then just redefine the block as needed
I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, I just didn't want to have to do it that way. Which is why I spelled out in my original post that I wanted to try something else.
But thanks for explaining what I already knew.
