A useful number to know is the inverse of the plot scale. referred to as the "drawing scale factor." The drawing scale factor can help you calculate text heights, line widths, etc., so that these items appear correctly in a plotted drawing. Note In AutoCAD, we assign a scale to a paper space viewport, so the plot scales listed above are more accurately referred to as viewport scales. The plot scale for a layout should always be 1:1. which is the scale for objects drawn in the layout. It is not necessary to memorize the scale factors in the table above, because you can easily compute the Drawing Scale Factor (or DSF). For example, consider the 1/4"=1'-0" plot scale. The DSF for this plot scale is 48. How is that number computed?
