Tip of the Week – Common Scaled Layouts

In this edition of  “Tip of the Week”:

 

Can I print my layout in a commonly used scale?

Yes! – Layouts can be printed off in a “ruler-scalable” format for more convenient use in the field by framers and installers.

How to create a layout in a common scale:

Step 1. In the Projects “Framing Layouts” tab, select the layout paper size. For this example, “11×17 Detailed” is selected.

Common, Scale, Layout, Projects, Paper size, 11x17, 24x36, Fit to Page, View, scaling, size, format, Digitizer, Structural, Pages, Project, Lists, Applications, Estimator, Estimate, Blueprint, Note, Reference, Create, Information, Material List, Material, Measurement, Project, PrebuiltML, PrebuiltML X, PrebuiltML PROtrade, Takeoff Software, Take-off Software, Construction, Building, Tips, Tip of the Week, Help, Hint, Guide, Knowledge, Training,

Step 2. In the “Scaling” column, change the selection in the drop down menu from “Fit to Page” to “Common Scale”.

Step 3. Go to the “View” button and click. The layout will be generated with the image showing at the largest possible “common” scale that can fit on the selected page size. The same layout could have different scales applied to it depending on which layout size/format was being used to preview the layout, i.e. 11×17 or 24×36.
