Commonly, in the drawing there are a different lot of scale styles. Some scale is popular as 1:10, 1:20, 1: 25, 1: 50, and 1:100. If you are civil engineering, you will see this ratio in the design drawing or construction drawing. So, how to create and control a new dimension in AutoCAD? In the tutorial lesson, I will introduce how to create it.
The first, you should remember that it is dependent on how your drawing presents and how is space. You need to determine this. According with my experience, you should show drawing in the layout space and when you dimension for components, you work in the model space. I will guide an example particular with some requirements for this case with scale 1:50
