AutoCAD Viewport Scaling – How to Add and Remove Scale Factors

Hey everyone,
Brandon here and after a short break (went on a pre-baby vacation with my wife to Hawaii!) I’m back with another AutoCAD video for you guys.
In todays new video I go over what seems to be the most confusing area of AutoCAD for many people: Autocad Scaling and Viewports. If you’ve been following my videos for a while now you may have seen one of my other Videos on the topic like:
How to Create Multiple Viewports in a Layout
or How to lock/unlock Viewports

If not, be sure to check them out if your having any issues setting up your layouts/viewports for drawings.
In todays video though I go over Viewport scaling, more specifically, how to add or remove scale factors from your scale list. By using this method you can easily add new scale factors to get the best views for your drawings.

After I cover adding two new scales to your drawing I show you how to set your viewports scale using them easily and quickly.

Watch the video below and let me know how scaling is working for you?

If you have any questions or trouble with scaling in autocad just leave a comment below and let me know how I can help out.
Cheers and happy drafting!
