Change Sheet Scale with a Configuration Change

Question asked by Jonny Greenphelan on Jul 4, 2018

Is there any way for a design table to control the sheet scale that is used in a drawing? Here is my dilemma. I have a master models that have up to 2000 or so configurations. I need to export a drawing of every configuration as a .pdf and a .dwg file. I have the drawings set up so the dimensions and notes all adjust position when I change the configuration of the drawing view. I then have a macro that runs through every configuration and saves the .pdf and .dwg. It all works well and everything looks pretty good until the configuration no long fits on the sheet properly. I would be willing to calculate a sheet scale property in the design or anywhere for that matter based on certain values related to the configuration. However, I don't see any way to pass that to the actual drawing file when changing configurations. I suppose this might be better accomplished in the macro. However, I am an amateur at best at macros and if I could do it in the design table it would be easier. This is the last piece of my puzzle where I could export all my drawing files with one run macro run. If anyone could help I would be very grateful. If not I am stuck creating different master models based on what scale they need to be in the drawing. Which wouldn't be awful but annoying. 

 

Thanks!
