    I wanted to ask a questions. I have an A2 Size drawing and I have added the scale bars from your CAD drawing (scales 1:50 and 1:100). If I am adding into layout space in an A2 size drawing. I am drawing in mm so the CAD blocks looks to big. Would you be able to help?

    • Hi Gemma,
      Are you adding the cad blocks to your model space? and then going to your layout space and making sure the viewport is scaled to 1:50 or 1:100? If you would like me to take a look, feel free to email your cad file to me at emma@firstinarchitecture.co.uk. Happy to help 🙂
