Definition: Scaled Drawing. A drawing that shows a real object with accurate sizes reduced or enlarged by a certain amount (called the scale).

## What are scale drawings used for?

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.

## What are scale drawings examples?

**Maps and floor plans** are some examples of scale drawings. The scale tells us what some length on the scale drawing represents in actual length. For example, a scale of “1 inch to 5 miles” means that 1 inch on the drawing represents 5 actual miles.

## What is the purpose of using scale drawings in construction?

A scale drawing of a building has the same shape as the real building that it represents but a different size. Builders use scaled drawings **to make buildings**. A metric scaled drawing will show how much smaller the area shown on a map/plan is compared to the same area in real life.

## What is full size scale?

Explanation: A full size scale is **a type of scale in which the length of the drawing and the actual length of the object is of the ratio 1:1**. Hence by definition, its representative fraction is 1:1. In full size scale, the drawing is drawn with the actual measurements. 2. … Hence the scale is enlarging scale.

## How is a scale written?

Scale tells the size relationship between the map or model and the real earth. It can be written in three ways, **the verbal scale, the graphic scale, and the representative fraction** (RF) or fractional scale. The verbal scale is a simple statement of the scale such as one inch equals one mile or 1″ = 1 mile.

## What is scale diagram?

Scale Diagram – **a drawing in which measurements are proportionally reduced or enlarged**. **from actual measurements**.

## What is the formula for scale drawing?

The scale is **shown as the length in the drawing, then a colon (“:”), then the matching length on the real thing**. Example: this drawing has a scale of “1:10”, so anything drawn with the size of “1” would have a size of “10” in the real world, so a measurement of 150mm on the drawing would be 1500mm on the real horse.

## What is the working drawing?

A working drawing is **a drawing or blueprint based on explanations**. It is completed with a thorough plan and views (details, notes, and dimensions) to ensure the product construction or replication without any additional information.

## How do you calculate scale?

To scale an object to a smaller size, you **simply divide each dimension by the required scale factor**. For example, if you would like to apply a scale factor of 1:6 and the length of the item is 60 cm, you simply divide 60 / 6 = 10 cm to get the new dimension.
