The scale factor is commonly expressed as 1:n or 1/n, where n is the factor. For example, if the scale factor is 1:8 and the real measurement is 32, divide 32 ÷ 8 = 4 to convert. To convert a scaled measurement up to the actual measurement, simply multiply the smaller measurement by the scale factor.

## What is a 1 to 1 scale?

The scale of drawings is described as a ratio using the notation: A distance at full size : The distance at the scale used that would be the same length. For example: A full size drawing would be 1:1 (or sometimes 1/1 or ‘one to one’). A half size drawing would be 1:2.
