Drawing to scale


I am a new user of solid edge.  What I would like to know is how to set the scale so that the input dimension is the same as what I entered?

Hi there @Jim2016,


Have a look at >this thread<, which I think covers [see the video from @Alan] what you're looking for.



Basically, draw ALL of your geometry full size [1:1] on the "2D Model" sheet, then place your scale view[s] of that model on one or more working sheet[s]...where you can place dimensions, that remain accurate to the model, regardless of the view scale.
