hello all autocad users,
I would like to scan old drawing sections into autocad and then scale them.
Anyone have the process for this.
The insert raster image is no problem but the scaling seems to be the
part I'm having problems with.
Pick a known distance on the raster and the, as best you can, do a DIST on
the two points defining it. Scale the raster
by a factor equal to the known distance divided by the measured distance.
Since the raster will be imprecise, you need to decide which known distance
to use as your reference as each one will yield a slightly different scale
IMO.......using the 'Reference' option to the Scale command leaves less
room for operator error. You only have one chance of transposing a
number, that way.............not that I'm known for such mistakes, or
