Select the reference square and type the **SCALE** command. Select a base point and click the **Reference** option in the command line. Specify the reference length of 1 inch, and then the required length of 1/4 inch. Press enter and the square now should be a quarter of its original size.

Best answer for this question, what is xref scale? INSUNITS specifies a drawing-units value for automatic scaling of blocks, images, or xrefs when inserted or attached to a drawing. If the INSUNITS values are different between the host drawing and the xref, **AutoCAD** scales the incoming xref to match the current scale.

## What does a scale factor of 2 represent in AutoCAD?

## What is the formula of scale factor?

The basic formula that is used for calculating the scale factor is, Scale factor = Dimension of the new shape ÷ Dimension of the original shape. In case, if the original figure is scaled up, the formula is written as, Scale factor = Larger figure dimensions ÷ Smaller figure dimensions.

## What is annotative scale in AutoCAD?

Annotative scaling is the process in which you select a scale for a drawing and all the annotative text, dimensions, blocks and hatches change to reflect the scale. This can also be set independently for each viewport so multiple scales can show on one sheet drawing.

## What is a 1/20 scale?

What does a 1:20 scale mean. The same goes for a 1:20 scale, which when used, represents a subject at a size 20 times smaller than its real word dimensions. Generally speaking, we have varying types of scale to represent different amounts of detail.

## What is the meaning of 1 100 scale?

Ratio scales If the scale of the plan is 1 : 100, this means the real measurements are 100 times longer than they are on the plan. So 1 cm on the plan represents a real length of 100 cm (1 metre)
