1=48

When you "stretch" a CAD object that has already been dimensioned, the dimension:

Number(s) will automatically adjust to the new object size.

What scale would you send a CAD drawing out to the plotter, if you wanted a result of 1/8"=1'-0"

1=96.

What scale would you set 1 = 1 drawing to, when you send it out to the plot device?

Full- size

On a CAD drawing, to use the "mirror" command, you must specify the "mirror line":

Which command places a previously defined block into a drawing?

The INSERT command

What value would you use to INSERT a MIRROR image of a previously defined block?

- 90
