I am testing a 30-day trial version of nanocad plus.

I am looking to buy the software, but I need to solve some command problems.

I'm having a hard time scaling the layout. In the autocad if I want the 1:50 scale, the command is Z [enter] S [enter] 1000 / 50xp [enter].

However in nanocad plus I was not able to find out the exact command to give the scale

Can anyone clarify exactly what command I give for 1:10, 1:20, 1:25, 1:50, 1: 100, 1: 200 and 1: 500 scales?

I tried it because of the calculations I found in other Forum topics, but I couldn't give the command correctly, and I also didn't understand how to find the scales.
So if someone can make themselves available to write exactly the command of how to do this with the active viewport window in the layout. I will be very grateful.

Hello,
even with Autocad i never use x/xp zoom ... :wacko:

See my example at time 0:40 -> https://youtu.be/hEbAvU1lYqc

Select the viewport and properties = Custom Scale
For a model in meter, a viewport with custom scale = 10, is a scale 1/100
Custom scale, it's the number of mm (paper printed) for 1 unity of model (meter in my example).
10 => 1(meter) / 0,010m (10mm) = 100 or 1/100
20 => 1(meter) / 0,020m (20mm) = 50 or 1/50
etc...

That's good ?
