    When I drag and drop wire from D-tools into Autocad model space it is really small. I have to change the scale of the wire to at least 25 to look normal. Can you please tell me how to rectify this as it is very time consuming.

    What is the page size you are using in Autocad? Maybe worth changing that to something smaller and seeing if that helps.

    You can also change the specifications in the product editor for that specific wire type and change the view type for the autocad drawing. I’ve not had this issue but I imagine these changes will help.

    hope this has helped.

    It is in Model space so 1:1. I’ll have a look at what you suggest as well.

    Maybe it is something to do with upgrading to Autocad 2016. When I was using 2012 I can’t recall having problems like that.

    Is it worth reverting back to 2012? Stick to what works best for you. I find myself not upgrading Adobe Illustrator as it works perfectly for me. Tried the newer versions and didn’t like it.

    Jackalo77,
    Via block editor you can scale the wire master block. Look for the local path:
    C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\D-Tools\SIX\Data\Drawings\AutoCAD
    Open the DWG file (with the wire block in it), then open in the block editor the wire block.
    Scale the wire, save and close the block editor and the file.
