GUIDE ON HOW TO PLACE THE DRAWING IN THE CADT/CALT FORMAT A.

Drawing, Setting the Layout and placing the AD plan format into the drawing 1. Draw or plot the boundary of your survey in the model space of your drawing in CAD 2. Once completed, click the layout tab located in the lower left portion of the drawing area. 3. The Page Setup Layout 1 will display/appear 4. In the Page Setup window, do the following a. Paper Size: please select ANSI E (34.00x44.00 Inches) using the pull down scroll b. Plot Scale : select Custom; if you select the unit in the Printable Area as inches, change the value 1 inches = 25.4 units If you select the unit in the Printable Area as mm, change the value 1 mm = 1 units c. Then, click OK 5. Click and Delete the solid rectangle border that appears in the Layout Space 6. Go to the folder where did you placed the CAD file of the AD plan format and open said file. 7. Once open, select all the drawings and text (contents) of the plan by making a window from lower right portion towards upper right portion of the drawing or by clicking Edit Menu and select Select All 8. Once selected, go again to Edit Menu and select Copy 9. Then, go back to the drawing of your survey in the Layout Tab where we left in item no. 5 above. 10. Click Edit Menu and select Paste to Original coordinates. The plan format which you copied from the other file will automatically appear on the layout space B. Placing the drawing into the layout 11. Type mview in the command line and press Enter. 12. Click on the upper right most portion of the drawing area of the plan, then draw the mouse towards the lower left most portion of the drawing area of the plan and click on the said side of the drawing area using snapping tools. (Use zoom and snapping tools to help you perform such easily) 13. The full extent of the objects drawn in the model space will automatically appear in the drawing area of the plan in the layout space. C. Scaling of the drawing 14. Type ms in the command line and press Enter. Hint: you are in the model space after entering the ms command and you will notice that XY axis (blue color) will appear inside the drawing area of the plan (lower left portion). 15. Type z for zoom and press Enter. 16. Type s for scale and press Enter.

17. Type 1000/SCALExp and press Enter. Note: test what scale that fits better for your drawing in the plan. Example: a). If you choose the scale 1:20000; enter in the scale factor: 1000/20000xp b). If you choose the scale 1:500; enter in the scale factor: 1000/500xp Repeat items 15, 16 and 17 in determining the appropriate scale 18. Once the scale is identified, type ps for paper space in the command line and press Enter. Note: the XY axis (blue color) will disappear D. Centering the drawn objects in the centerline of the plan 19. In the model tab, place a cross line indicating the center point of the drawn objects. 20. Go back to the layout tab, ensure that the centerline in the plan is marked properly. 21. Type ms in the command line and press Enter. 22. Use PAN tool and drag the drawing until the centerline in the drawing and the plan is almost align. Note: do not use move tool in performing this 23. Type ps and press Enter. 24. Zoom in to the centerpoint/line of the plan. You will notice that there is a slight difference in the alignment of the centerlines of the drawn objects and the plan. 25. Type ms and press Enter. 26. Use PAN tool and align the said centerlines. 27. Once aligned, type ps and press Enter 28. Type z and press Enter 29. Type e for extents and press Enter. The centerline of the drawn object is already aligned with the centerline of the plan in the layout tab E. FONT HEIGHT 30. If you opted to place the labels in the layout tab, the units here is in millimeters when printed. Example: Height is 2, meaning 2mm 31. If you opted to place the labels in the model tab, the units here is dependent on the units selected, which in most cases is in meters. If you want to print a 2mm font height in the printed plan, here is the computation in the actual font height in the model tab. Formula: Desired Font Height / (1/SCALE) Example A.: Let: X is the equivalent value of the desired printed font height in model space Y is the desired printed font height Given: Y = 2mm; Scale = 1:30000 Formula:

X = Y / (1/scale) or Y * scale Solution: X = 0.002 * 30000 X = 60 Example B.: Given: Y = 5mm; Scale = 1:30000 Solution: X = 0.005 * 30000 X = 150 32.
