what is 1:125 ?

Postby draftsman » Tue Mar 15, 2005 4:30 am

this is from someone who hasn't really used metric since the 4th grade ... nearly 39 years ago :/

when I use an engineering metric scale on a Acad drawing and I use the 1:125 what does this mean ... 1 centemeter, 1 milimeter or 1 meter equals 125 meters ?

the bar scale at 150 meters measures 15 on the 1:125 ... that kind of tells me that this perticular drawing is actually 1:1250 ?

also any hints of websites where one might get a quick crash course / brush up on metric lingo and conversions :)


I am all eyes :shock:
