When I am in the program drawing something, for exsample a trailer I am trying to draw to scale. I make the width of the trailer 6 inches to represent 72" When I try to put on dimentions it always shows 6" , not 72" or if I want something else 68" it won't show that it will show whatever it actally is on the page. IS there a way to change this?????
Of course if I actally make it 68" it is way to big to print. Thanks! JASON
Jason, In Solid Edge you always draw your geometry at 1:1 scale. You use other tools to create scaled drawings. We do this so that you do not have to be concerned with trying to draw geometry at a specific scale. You always draw what you actually want. There are a few ways to create a scaled drawings, keeping in mind that you draw the geometry at the actual size. There is a couple of different workflows you can choose, but I need more information about your actual intent. Are you actually trying to create a drawing at a specific scale, or simply print your geometry on a piece of paper at whatever scale it takes to get it on the paper provided? Regards, Rick B.
