    Default PROBLEM WITH SCALE FROM A DXF FROM PLS-CADD

    Hi all,

    I have received many drawings from a consultant that are dxf's. I need to convert these to dwg's (easy). I'm having a problem with scaling. The consultant generated the dxf's from pls-cadd in model space. So I have drawings with title blocks in model space THAT ARE NOT GEOREFERENCED. The dxf's are lined up about 15 dxf's per drawing. I'm trying to get these into paper space with the correct scale, but am having a problem. I can set up the plot layout for a size D sheet, landscape, but when I bring in a view port of the particular dxf, the scale will be off. When I go ZOOM-XP-1/100 the drawing gets SUPER SMALL. I'm not sure where to go from here. I THINK what I have to do is to setup an individual drawing for each of the dxf's and set up my layout that way, but that would be a pain.

    If anyone has a tip/idea that would be much appreciated.

    R~

    sounds like a units conflict. presuming you normally work in FT, scale the dxf x 12, and then see how it looks in the viewport at 1:100

    or possibly meters to ft? mm to m?
