Understanding how “Model Space” and “Layouts” interact with one another is the key to creating sheets with proper scales and lineweights in AutoCAD. We can create multiple groups of objects (Such as floor plans and details) in model space, and we can use viewports to show these groups on our layouts (Also known as sheets).

When printing a sheet, we can turn certain layers off and only show the contents within viewports (Rather than the viewports themselves). Our plot settings allow us to modify our sheet size, plot table styles, scales, lineweights. With these settings, there’s no need to change our model and viewport scales.

This guide explains how models, layouts, and plots in AutoCAD work together to provide us with accurate deliverables. For more information, please contact us at info@ddscad.com
