I am currently using microstation ss3 ver 8.11.09.578 and my drawing is scaled to 1:1. I would like a scale of 1/2"=1'-0". Can someone show me the calcs and the steps how to do this?
create a sub model and self ref the master model and attach it at a scale of 1/2"= 12 " or 1:24 ( ie 1"=24" ) or create a saved view of the master model and attach that as a ref with 1:24 scale in the ref manager. . btw what units is your design file in? We are metric here Australia so scaling is really easy....
How are you using your title block or sheet frame paper outline will also affect what steps to do?

Can't get it to work, how?
Hello Mr. Lothian,
Can't get it to work when trying to create a sheet model and a simple landscape 11"x17" border sheet.
Post a screenshot of your DGN showing which part of the drawing should be visible on the sheet
Never mind, watch this to get the idea. I don't normally have 'murican' sheet sizes or scales in my config but I added the ANSI B and 1/2" = 1'-0" for this test. I don't think your proposed scale is correct, as you can see, you would not be able to fit a titleblock on the sheet. I just picked part of the DGN file which would be closest to fit the sheet at the scale, made a saved view (as I always do) and attached that as a reference file. Nothing difficult about it at all.
