Line Weights at Scale

Post by Matt_A » Mon Nov 04, 2019 10:24 pm

Sometimes you might want to draw a single line drawing, but use lineweights that are accurate scaled dimensions. PowerCADD uses 72points = 1" (at 1:1 scale) so a 1 point line is 0.666" wide at 1/4"=1'-0" scale

Line Weights at Scale

Post by Matt_A » Tue Nov 05, 2019 2:23 am

In order to create these, I made a line weight of 1" actual width and used the WildTools Scale tool to scale it accordingly.

I thought this was faster than calculating all the line weights manually and creating line weights of each width.

Set the End Cap to None if you're using this technique for schematic layouts.
