What determines what scale is used on placing the1st view on a drawing.
Generally we us A3 size paper for single component drawings.
When I bring a part into the drawing I usually (but not always) have to go to the model sheet properties and change the scale so it looks better on the drawing.
For example on one part I brought it in and the scale was 20:1 so it looked tiny on the drawing.
So I had to change this to 10:1 to make it look better.
What determines the initial scale on placing the 1st view?
