How to use Scale Command in AutoCAD


Now we will see that how we can use Scale command in AutoCAD.

To start the scale command, we will go to our modify panel and select the scale command option.

The shortcut key for the scale command is the 'S+C+Enter' key.

First of all, we will need to select the object, we will choose it by cross selection method, and then it will ask us to specify a base point, we will identify it. We need to remember that the base point will get fixed, and the scaling will be done from that point only throughout.

If we want the double of the selected object to appear in front of our screen, we will give the value as 2, and the whole object will appear double.

We can also select the value as 0.5 if we want the object to be half the main object's size.


The scale is set by entering a fractional value. The numerator is the distance from the original point to the projected point, and the denominator is the distance from the original point to the drawing origin.

For example:

  • If you wanted to create a 1:2 scale drawing of an object that was 12 inches away from your original point, you would enter "1/2" for your scale value.

Autocad is a computer-aided design software that is used for designing and drafting buildings, structures, and other architectural projects. It is a 2D and 3D CAD (computer-aided design) application. Autocad can be scaled to any size without losing the quality of the drawings.

Scale text is a simple and easy way to create text that is proportional to the size of an object. When you want to create text that is proportional to the size of an object, you can use scale text. Scale text can be used in many different ways. It can be used as a dimension, as a title block, or as a drawing label.

Scale Text is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to resize any text on a webpage. You can also use it to change the font size or choose a different font.

This tool is especially useful for those who have vision problems and need bigger fonts or those who want to read from their phones or tablets.
