AutoCAD – Setting the correct layout scale, once and for all


Cartoon by Roger Penwill

When working with AutoCAD, there are some common issues people run into. One that keeps coming up is how to set the proper layout scale when plotting. Depending on which template was used to create the drawing, the attached scales might look different from file to file.

In AutoCAD, we draw in 1:1 in model space with our (pre)defined units. The paper space where we create layouts is set to millimeters, and the scale used in the paper space is calculated based on a factoring number between the model and paper space. Basically, we don’t need to worry about custom scales, we can just zoom to scale in the drawing. Read the rest of this entry »

Vectorworks – Førsteinntrykk og erfaringer


Foto: Nemetchek

Etter å ha gjennomgått Nemetcheks “Getting Started”-guides for Vectorworks Landmark har vi fått grunnleggende innsikt i hvordan Vectorworks føles å jobbe i. I tillegg har vi vært gjennom to webinarer som tar for seg holdningen til BIM-prosjektering; BIM Workflows in Landscape Architecture i regi av Nemetchek for AIA/ALA (American Association of Architects/Landscape Architects), samt generell håndtering av landskapsmodulen; Designing in Vectorworks Landmark 2011 i regi av NOVEDGE. Sistnevnte finnes offentlig tilgjengelig på YouTube.   Read the rest of this entry »

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
