# Re: Plot scale/Annotation scale/Viewport scale

Jamal,

I was going to explain step by step an answer to your question but I think there is an easier way.  I would suggest watching the video in the link provided.  It will clear up so many questions you have about this topic.  It will also explain the scale questions and show how to set the annotative buttons at the bottom right of the screen to display your dimensions correctly.

The author actually explains viewports which are exactly what you are trying to draw.  It is a very short video, 4 minutes but is very thorough in the explanation.  Good luck!

Thank you guys for the prompt help and support.

Just I got a table (atatched) from a friend that relates all the scales in one table based on two facts

• The drawing unit is in meter
• The plot scale (on the plot-model dialogue box) is 1000mm=100units

This is quite similar to what has been provided by GrantsPirate earlier in this thread

Hi GrantsPirate,

I got a more generic mathematical equations that relates these types of scales! Sounds logic! Please, see the attached file. (the assumption is that the drawing unit is meter)
