Creating models to scale

You can create models that are not based on any scale, useful for drafting quick concepts, or are based on some scale, useful for creating a final produced product. Models that are not created based on some scale can be rescaled when accuracy becomes important.

  • Use the Tape Measure tool to rescale an entire model to a specific scale. See Scaling an Entire Model for further information.
  • Use the Measurements toolbar to provide specific dimensions as you draw. The values accepted by Measurements toolbar depend on the tool you are using. See the Measurements toolbar for further information.
