    Default Inserting Scale Bar


    I am very new to Civil 3D (am using 2011). I am working on a drawing that was scanned in as an image. I pulled up my company's template title block .dwg file then attached this image as a raster to the drawing. I got all the scales figured out (whether I did this correctly or not I do not know) so that if I use the measure tool and measure a piece on the drawing it shows the correct measurement (i.e. the drawing says the distance between two buildings is 16' and so does the measuring tool).

    When I print out this drawing on 24"x36" paper the scale should be and is 3/16" = 1 foot. How do I insert a scale bar that will show this?

    If you do not already have a block that has this scale set, you would need to create one. I do not think Civil 3D comes with bar scales using architectural units.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Sounds reasonable enough. Thanks!
