The purpose of creating detailed architectural blueprints is to display your design as a two-dimensional (2D) representation on a sheet of paper, this is why CAD software is great for architectural drafting. Since you might have a problem fitting a 500 ft. long strip mall on your drafting table, you’ll need to use a ratio between the actual size of your structure and a smaller dimension on the sheet. This is referred to as the scale or scale factor. For example, a common architectural scale is 1/4″ = 1′-0″. This is read as: “one-quarter of an inch equals one foot”. If the front wall of your structure is 20 feet long, the line representing that face on your page will be five inches (5″) long. (20 x 0.25 = 5). When working with Cad Pro this way ensures that everything you draw is proportional and will fit together in the real world.
Different types of design industries use different standard scales. When working with civil engineering drawings, scales are in the full inch format, i.e. (1″ = 50′), while architectural and mechanical plans are more often done in fractional format (1/2″ = 1′-0″). Scales can be done in any unit of linear measure: feet, inches, meters, kilometers, miles, etc. The key is to pick a scale before you begin your design and use it for the entire design process.
