    how do you increase the size of your drawing without affecting your dimensions?

    Im new to AutoCad and trying to learn it as I go. I created a drawing that consisted of only a few feet. When I attempted to print, it was too small to see. My question is:, how do you increase the size of your drawing without affecting your dimensions?

    First rule of AutoCAD is draw all objects in model space at FULL size. Then make use of paper space layouts and viewports for seeing those objects. Viewports have scales assigned to them. Annotaion can be handled using annotative scaling.

    Have you heard of any of this at all?

    Do you have an after-market AutoCAD book?
