Component Sizing

203 Views, 1 Replies

I have a bunch of drawings with components in them that are too small to be seen when printed. Lets say they are prox switches. Is there any way to resize them either one by one or preferrable project wide? I need all the components to be about twice the size they are now.

There is a way to re-size blocks across a
project.  You should back-up your project/drawings before running
this.  What you will want to do is:

 

- Open a drawing in the project that has a block on
you would like to change the scale for

- From the 'Electrical' pull-down menu, select
'Component Misc'->'Swap Block'.

- On the 'Swap Block/Update Block/Library Swap'
dialog
Select 'Update a block - substitute new
version for selected block'

- Press OK

- Select the block on the drawing you want to
increase the scale on

- On the 'Update block - New blocks path\filename'
dialog change the 'Insertion scale' value to what you would like the new scale
to be.  The path should be correct.

- At this point, you can do this scale change on
just the current drawing (Dwg-wide), or the complete project
(Proj-wide).

 

This will only change the scale of this one
block/symbol.  Either across the complete current drawing or the project,
so you will have to run this multiple time, but it should still save a lot of
time.
