I just downloaded Solid Edge 2D a few days ago. I was using DesignCAD Max23 before, but it lacked some what to me would be basic features. What it did do that I liked was print full sized drawing in whatever scale you needed simply by putting in the scale factor in the dialog box. In my case .125.
I have spent the last hour going over the print to scale threads, and it seems that you have to recreate the drawing by copying and pasteing it to a different sheet in a different scale. It also seemed like everyone had a different way of doing it. I tried to scale the area on the 2D Model tab, and the sheet setup on the sheet tab, neither of which I could get to work. The solutions are several years old so I thought that maybe it's done differently now.
Just for testing I have a 1inch circle that I want to print at 1/8 scale. Naturally, the print would be a circle of .125 inches. How can I do that?
I should mention that I have imported my DesignCAD drawings to work on. Is it possible that because they are not native to Solid Edge that they can't be handled the same way.
When you create a 2D Model view on the working sheet, you are not copying the geometry from the 2D Model working space. you are just creating a view that is a window into the geometry. This view can be set to whatever scale. Simply click on the view on the working sheet (Sheet1). You will see the ribbon bar for the view. There is a scale that you can change on this ribbon bar.
