In this edition of “Tip of the Week”:
What if you have a roof drawn at 1/8″ scale but your elevation/exterior is 1/4″ scale? How do you handle a page with items shown at multiple scales?
Use the “Copy Page” feature!
Here’s how you do it:
1. Add your page image in the Plan tab.
2.Right mouse click on the page and select, “Make a copy of this Page in the Page List”
3. Now you have a copy.
4. Set the different scaling values you need for each page by using either the manual scale method or selecting from the “right click menu”. In this case, set one to 1/4″ and the other set to 1/8″.
5. Now you are ready to start your Takeoff with the proper scaling for both the Roof and the Elevation/Exterior.
