Scaling by a Scale Factor in AutoCAD

Scaling by a scale factor changes all dimensions of the selected object. A scale factor greater than 1 enlarges the object. A scale factor less than 1 shrinks the object. In the following example, you decrease the size of the block by half, scaling it by a factor of 0.5.

To scale a selection set by a scale factor

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Scale.
  2. Select the object to scale (1).
  3. Specify the base point (2).
  4. Enter .5 (the scale factor).

Command line SCALE
Shortcut menu Select the objects to scale, right-click in the drawing area, and choose Scale.
