Has anyone had any luck in creating a graphic bar scale to place on your sheets or in your drawings. This would be very helpful as I find myself doing large scale projects quit often.
If your asking about parametric bar scales....I've been working on one...but have come to the realization that I probably need 3 different ones (Metric, Arch Floor Plans and Arch Details)...
Attached a family with a graphic scale. It contains several scales (1:20, 1:50 and 1:100).
However it is very easy to create additional types with other scales.
It is a general annotation family. It is needed that the view scale and scale of the graphic annotation is the same to have it working correctly.
I have not seen "automatic" graphic bars that can read the scale from views or sheets and adapt to that.
(something on many peoples wishlist)
I have this family already a long time and can not remember if I made it myself or got it from somewhere else.
Otherwise thanks to that person.
Egan BIM Resources has developed an automatic, parametric graphic scale app.
The graphic scale is placed within the "View Title" family and it updates automatically whenever the scale of the view is changed.
You can customize the "graphic" part to look however you want. Works for both metric and imperial scales.
You have to see it in action to believe it!
