Hi,

 

>> How to change profile view horizontal and vertical scale?

In other words "one global scale" and the exaggeration, that is how Civil3D thinks:

 

The global scale is definied by the viewport that should you profile view (or section view) show.

 

The exaggeration is definied within the style that you assigned to your profile view. On the second tab you can set the vertical-scale.

Select your profile view ==> right-click for the contextmenu ==> edit profile view style ==> within this new dialog go to the second tab and there you find on the right side the exaggeration value to modify.

 

Be carefull: if you change this value all profile views that have this style assigned will be regenerated!

Hi,

 

>> i want all scales should show in model spase

For that you can set the scale also in modelspace by setting the annoscale. If you change the annoscale all scale depending sizes are shown in the same sizes as you would get when setting a viewport to that scale before plot.

 

 

However you can set the annoscale to whatever you want, when plotting a layout with a viewport the annoscale of the modelspace has no effect for that!

Hi,

 

ok, got it, sorry. ... :smileywink:

Sorry no chance to get it scaled/make it scaleable within modelspace. The stationing of the Profile View is alway 1:1 and there is no option to show it in modelspace shorter than the length between start- and end-station.

 

Whatever the reason is (could not imagine one) a chance could be in another drawing. You can XRef or insert your drawing with the Profile View into a new drawing, and here you can provide insertion scale factors. But then it's a block or Xref, nothing you can work with.
