DriveWorks Pro 15: Rescale And Position View [send feedback...]

Rescale And Position View

The Rescale And Position View Generation Task will position a view according to the given Maximum and Minimum positions, and rescales the View accordingly.


When this task is added the properties are static by default.

See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.

Property NameExample RuleExample ResultMeaning
View Name"Drawing View1"Drawing View1This is the name of the View to rescale.
Maximum Right300300This value is the Maximum allowable right position.
Maximum Top280280This value is the Maximum allowable top position.
Minimum Bottom7575This value is the Minimum allowable bottom position.
Minimum Left5050This value is the Minimum allowable Left position.

The values entered into the task create a specific zone on the drawing for the view (see image below).

You must include the scale part of the name if the name belongs to a detail view i.e. "Detail View A (1 : 10)"

DriveWorks will scale up the generated drawing view as much as possible to fit the zone.

Dimensions are not constrained to this zone.
