Free CAD Blocks – Scale Bars

Scale Bars Free CAD Blocks

At First In Architecture, we understand the importance of accuracy and efficiency in the design process. That’s why each of our CAD blocks is meticulously crafted to provide an easy drag and drop into your own CAD file. From trees, to people to vehicles and more, our CAD blocks provide the entourage variety you need to bring your drawings to life.

I have made a much better set of Dynamic Scale Bars which you can download here.

Here is another set of free cad blocks from the First In Architecture Cad Block database. We hope you find them useful. Please feel free to download them. We will endeavour to continue building our free autocad block library – if you have any suggestions for useful content please get in touch.

This set of cad blocks consists of a selection of scale bars. All you have to do is put them into your layout space (not model space) and they will be to the correct scale. If you get stuck, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. You can comment below, or find us on Facebook and Twitter.

I have made a quick video on how to use the scale bars – which you can find here.

  2. Hi Emma,
    Thanks for your brilliantly helpful web site, a real find.
    The reason for this quick message is I’m having trouble using your scale blocks.
    When I insert them on the layer they are massive, totally out of scale.
    The process is:- Set up the page size to A3 and adjust the view-port. Locate the part of drawing I require in the view-port. Return to paper space and then cut and paste your block. (Control C and Control V in windows)

    • Hi Ian, thank you for your kind comments about the site.
      Yes, completely see your problem with the scale bars. Unfortunately they have not been drawn well at all! When importing them into the layout of the drawing, they do show the correct scale, but the scale bars themselves are just too big. It is something I will work on, and possibly look at converting them into dynamic blocks for ease. That doesn’t help you in the meantime though I’m afraid. I worked on a couple of different scaled drawings recently for a blog post, and in that cad file there are a collection of more sensible scale bars! I will email it to you directly and hopefully that might be a bit more useful! Keep an eye on your inbox! Thanks, emma

      • Hello

        I am having the same problem.
        Were you able you fix this? could you send me the smaller blocks?
        Thanks

        • Hello Christina, I’m afraid I haven’t sorted it – slipped to the end of my list. However, I’ll email you the file in the hope that it might be useful to you. Check your inbox 🙂

          Thanks, Emma

          • Hello

            I love your site; i’m just getting back into autocad after a three year break and it seems I have forgotten everything!

            I’m desperately looking for a sensible dynamic scalebar. Is there any chance you could send them to me as well.

            Many thanks, David

          • Hi David, thank you for your comment. I’m afraid I am yet to make the dynamic scale bar. I can email over the other scale bars I mentioned but they aren’t anything fancy! Keep an eye on your inbox! Thanks, Emma

  3. Thanks! this is very informative article.

  4. Hi, do you have a 1:150 scale bar perhaps? Or know of how i can edit one to fit my drawings scale?
    Thank you

    Reply
    • Hi there, I’m afraid I don’t have a 1:150 as this is a non standard scale. Sorry I can’t be of more assistance. Emma

  5. Hello. I am completely new to Scale Bars and I need to submit a Cad drawing to Council with a scale bar.

    Cad drawings are in scale 1:100 and 1:200.

    Please can you help?

    • Hi there Perminder,
      Sure, what is your question regarding the scales? What part of the submission of your cad drawing to the council are you struggling with? We will do our best to advise.
      Thanks, Emma

  6. Hi Emma
    Just found your site, I am also looking at a 1:200 scale bar, but was also having the same problem as a Ian and Christina, back in 2018, when I import them they are huge. did you do anything to make them smaller?

  7. Can you email them to me as well.
