 How to narrow graphics in the CAD

It is actually very east to narrow graphics in the CAD. As we know, SC is the ratio command in the CAD. Then, since the SC is the ratio command, we can use it to enlarge or narrow the graphics. For example, the SC 1.5 means to magnify the graphics 1.5 times. In the same way, the SC 0.5 means to narrow the graphic 0.5 times.
Except for the SC command, you can use the reference zoom to zoom in or zoom out.
Steps: SC - R (Reference) - Reference length - New Length.
For example, if you want to narrow the graphic three times, you can enter the SC - r - 3-1. Similarly, if you want to magnify the graphic three times, you can enter SC - r - 1-3.
Graphics zoom is the basic operation in the CAD. If you don’t know how to use the shortcuts, you can press the F1 for help. We recommend to checking and remembering some commonly used commands and their functions daily.
The above methods are available for ZWCAD2012,ZWCAD Mechanical, ZWCAD Architecture as well.
