Re: scale conversions

This is sort of the same thread - I've got a 1:250 scaled plan drawing and I need to know how to convert it to 1:200, or 1:100 so I can meaningfully read off the measurements
(I've got a basic scale ruler that only does 1:5 1:50 1:10 1:100 1:20 1:200 and 1:500 1:1000).
Help?!

1 unit on the plan is 20 units on the floor, that is what 1:20 means.

If the real dimension is 60 cm on the floor, then on the plan, it is 60/20 = 3 cm.

All dimensions on the "paper doll" plan furniture will be 1/20 the real dimensions

Best way: Redraw it to the new scale
Might work: Try to get the copier set to magnification ratios of exactly 83.333%, 166.666%, 250%

Normally the magnification isn't exactly right, but this may be an adequate approximation.

5000 mm x 1/25 = 200 mm

A scale of 1:250 means 1 unit (any unit) on the drawing is 250 of the same unit in the real world, 1 cm on the drawing is 250 cm, or 2.5 m in the real world. So you could use a ruler and multiply by 250.

Alternatively, you can use 1:50 scale and multiply values read by 5, or you could use the 1:500 scale and divide the values read by 2 (you could use the 1:200 scale and multiply by 1.125, but that sounds pretty inconvenient)
