What is scale in drawing?
Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the meaning of scale in drawing?
A drawing that shows a real object with accurate sizes reduced or enlarged by a certain amount (called the scale). The scale is shown as the length in the drawing, then a colon (":"), then the matching length on the real thing.
Also, why is scale drawing important? Scale drawings are a useful tool for any designer, because they can be used to plan, visualize and adjust landscape plans before breaking ground. Scale drawings assign each object the same scale compared to the actual objects.
Also to know is, what are the types of scale drawing?
- Representing scales: The proportion between the drawing and the object can be represented by two ways as follows:
- a) Scale: - 1cm = 1m or 1cm=100cm or 1:100.
- There are three types of scales depending upon the proportion it indicates as.
- Scale: - 1cm=100cm or 1:100 and by RF=1/100 (less than one)
What is the scale of 1 100?
The 1:100 ratio is that of a centimeter to a meter. That is, 1 cm of a model is equal to 100 cm when the product is actually built, or if its the representation of a map, a centimetre on the map is equal to a metre when realistic distance between the two places in the map is to be considered.
