- [Instructor] AutoCAD allows us to draw our geometry … in real scale, or one-to-one. … This means we can draw a house in real dimensions, … but eventually we still need to print black lines … on white paper. … To scale our final prints, AutoCAD uses layouts … and concepts known as paper space and model space. … These are somewhat abstract concepts, … so don't feel bad if it takes a little bit … of practice and a little use to become … comfortable with them. … Obviously we cannot print full house plan … in one-to-one scale on a piece of paper, … so it must be scaled down. … Rather than scaling down our geometry … and losing the convenience of drawing in real space, … we will use layouts. … Model space is where we'll create our object geometry … drawn in real dimensions. … Each layout represents a piece of paper … and is also drawn at real scale. … So I'll use a 36 by 24 rectangle to represent … a 36 by 24 inch piece of paper. … Now to share the geometry I created in model space, … I'll cut a hole in this piece of paper …
