    Post Using metric scale for assignment

    Hi, I'm majoring in Urban Planning and I have this assignment where I have to scale 1:100 on a 3M base. I'm supposed to draw an axonometric projection of this house. The house is shown overhead without the roof. My question is what does it mean when the base is 3M. Do I just scale 3M on each room on a 1:100 scale? That would be pretty small considering I have to put this on A2 paper.

    On A2 paper, 3m will be 3 cm

    <br />
3m = 3 \times \frac{1}{100}

    = 0.03 m = 3 cm
