I was wondering if machinists get any real benefit from being able to scale from a drawing, i.e if I call out "SCALE 2:1" on a detail view or in the title block will that help anyone at all. The printer I use does not print out all the correct sheet sizes, so I was tempted to just put "DO NOT SCALE" for all of the drawings views. It seems old school to me if they are using a print to scale things, especially tight toleranced items. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
