Does anybody here know how to use AutoCad? I've been learning from online material and I think I'm getting the hang of it but there's one thing I still can't get right: scale.
I start up a new drawing, set UNITS to use Metres. Draw everything in Model space by the premise that "1" means 1 metre. All looks good and pretty until I move over to Paper space, where it looks TINY. If I set it to 1:1, it seems to take up the space on paper I'd expect it to take if I set it to 1:100 or something. It would seem that what I used as "1" wasn't interpreted as 1m but maybe 1mm or something. Hence the drawing needs to be set to a much larger scale to take up about the space I expected it to take relative to the printable page.
I've looked online but it doesn't seem to be clear ANYWHERE. I've asked people but haven't gotten a straight answer. Does anybody here know how to get it right?
I need to draw buildings, floor plans. This is one of the things I'm supposed to know if I intend to be an Architect
