Drafting Scales

Drafting Scales

Often, a draftsman needs to draw something as big as a house but has to fit it into a piece of paper as wide as a cafeteria tray. Sometimes, they have to draw a tiny screw but need to expand it a hundred times larger. A drafting scale, also called a metric scale, is what a draftsman uses to scale down or scale up an object without deviating from the proportions of the real thing. Drafting scales are basically multi-dimensional rulers. They usually have six faces that contain different scales or size settings. They are used in various fields involving technical drawings such architecture and engineering.
