This depends on the context. I'm assuming you are in Draft.   Dimensions that attach to 3D model views derive their scale from the drawing views.  Dimensions to 2D geometry drawn in the Working Sheet will always be 1:1 but you can change the scale of the dimensions individually or change the entire dimension styles scale (not recommended).  If you are drawing geometry at some scale in Draft, the correct process is to use the 2D Model sheet and then use the Drawing Area Setup command to set the scale and then your dimensions will auto scale as well.

 

A better solution is to use the 2D Model sheet and draw the geometry at 1:1 and then place a 2D Model View(s) on the Working Sheet and print that...
