A scale is defined as the ratio of the linear dimensions of the object represented in a drawing to the actual dimensions of the same.
Drawings of small objects can be prepared of the same size as the objects they represent. A 150 mm long pencil may be shown by a drawing of 150 mm length. Drawings drawn of the same size as the objects are called full-size drawings. The ordinary full-size scales are used for such drawings.
