Macro for automatically scaling section views / isometric views on drawings.

So I'm using DriveWorksXpress to automate my model and print creation. I am terrible with macros, so I am here for some help / guidance.

 

The company I work for manufactures PTFE Rotary lip seals, and we make seals of all different sizes.

 

So if I make a seal that is Ø2.000", it automatically creates the model, and drawing based off of the model it made. 

That works great.

 

The only problem is, now if I design a seal that is Ø8.000", the scale is different and way out of proportion to the automated drawing.

 

I'm looking for a way to have these section views for each component automatically scaled into the created drawings, so I don't have to manually re-scale each view and place it accordingly.

 

Any help / guidance on this task would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
