Adding Custom Scales to AutoCAD Mechanical’s Scale List

Posted July 8, 2013 by Jim Swain, Project Manager, Manufacturing Solutions: Note: AutoCAD Mechanical uses a drawing variable, AMSYMSCALE, to hold the current scale factor for Power Dimensions, symbols and some other objects. This isn’t the same as the AutoCAD Annotative objects and their scales. Annotative objects were introduced in R2008, while Mechanical’s symbol scaling has been around since before R2000. The two
