Titleblock scale disclaimer
« on: March 25, 2015, 09:41:07 AM »
I'm trying to add a disclaimer note/scale to our titleblock to the degree of "if this scale does not measure exactly 1 inch, please modify graphic scale blah blah or something..."

Does anyone have something like this in their titleblock they would mind sharing for the sake of example?

I have seen such notes however; I often wonder WHY they are there, other than issues with reproductions and possible changes in scale (distortion)

One could use something like this.

This drawing is (SCALE) only when the graphic scale shown hereon is EXACTLY 1" from 0 to 100 (scale 1"=100')
If the graphic scale is found to NOT be EXACTLY 1" DO NOT SCALE FROM THE DRAWING.
Or everything you build will be wrong an it will not be our problem.

We have this as part of the barscale block: "SCALE MUST MEASURE 1 INCH OR DRAWING IS NOT TO SCALE."

You just put it as a chunk of text under the graphic scale?

What side of the pond are you on ?  ::)


I've been on both....so either is acceptable to me...and Websters.  Also part of the 'humor'.

One of our clients had a note to the effect that the drawing scale only applies to the CAD file and not any hard copies.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

   finally

Yes I saw that ... when casting stones (from whatever side of the pond you're on) at least take the time to make your point look somewhat presentable.
And this is the point where MJ has to have the final say no matter what so I'm ducking out ...

What if that were a comma? Could be a bad scan! *shrug*

That would be sort of silly, as no one really 'scales' a cad file....do they?

I wasn't 'casting stones'.....It was a small poke...yet some of you have decided that anything and everything I post must be put under a scanning tunneling electron microscope; to what end I'll never understand...nor do I much concern myself with.

Have a happy springtime day!  I know I will.
