Preparing to Draw and Geometric Construction Log$ Hit Fally Marlo
Layouts, Scales, and Orientation Paper sizes are 8.5x11 and 11x17 Portrait is when the paper is vertical and landscape is horizontal. In AutoCAD you usually have to choose the scale according to the size of your drawing. In Revit it automatically changes your scale, but you can change it in the settings if you wish. When you handraw something you usually have to decide on the scale according to the size of the paper and the size of your drawing.
Line Types Different line types help convey ideas of different aspects in a property. Different line types can help you annotate where the property edge is, where the house is located, and where other objects are located in the property.
Lines, Arcs, and Angles Line: a straight or curved continuous extent of length without breadth. Arc: a curved shape, or something shaped like a part of the circumference of a circle or other curve. Angle: the space (usually measured in degrees) between two intersecting lines or surfaces at or close to the point where they meet.
Dimensions and Notes Dimensions are used to annotate the measurements of different shapes in your drawing. This is usually used as reference when the object is being reconstructed, whether it be in another drawing or in actual in construction. Notes are usually added to the drawing to give additional information to the user, viewer, or constructer that is needed to understand the drawing or help reconstruct it.
