Scaling your plans in Buildxact allows you to measure your plans quickly and accurately, which in turn creates more accurate costings. There are different ways to scale your plans to make scaling in bulk easier.

  1. Choose a plan that has measurements to scale.

  2. Click the ruler icon and choose from the following options on the menu:

Scale this plan – if you only want to scale the selected plan e.g., this plan has a scale that is different to the rest of the plans.

Scale all unscaled plans – the measurement you draw on the selected plan will be used to scale all the plans that have not been scaled yet. In other words, this will assign the same scale to any remaining plans yet to be scaled.

Scale all plans – the measurement you draw on this plan will be used to scale all the plans. That is, all the plans will have the same scale. You can also use this to scale all your plans in bulk, and then use the first option to rescale any that are a different scale.

The following video shows how it's done.

Firstly, draw the horizontal line on the plan, you can zoom in on the drawing for more accuracy, then input the measurement. We recommend you draw the longest line on the plan.

Repeat this process for the vertical line.
