quickly calculate a scale factor or ratio for a detail area in a drawing.

Thomas Christman supplied Scale Calculator (Tip #2092) for quickly calculating a scale factor or ratio for a detail area in a drawing. It will also calculate the dimension linear scale factor for the scaled detail area. Two functions are in this tip, DSCALE and DFACTR. After loading the LSP file into AutoCAD, type DSCALE if you know the drawing scale factor and scale factor of the details (e.g.: 2X is simply 2). The resulting scale ratio (1:n) is presented along with the required setting for the linear scale factor when dimensioning. DFACTR computes the scale factor given the detail ratio if those are the values known.
