Gentleman,
Iím working a project and am trying to recreate a building in scale. What formula do I use to go from 1:1 scale down to 1:35 scale?
Thanks for your help in advance

Divide the 1:1 measurement by 35. It's probably easiest to work in millimeters, not inches.

Agreed Millimeters are easier to use. You can download various freeware scale converters to help too.

1/35 is the formula. One divided by thirty-five. Divide all measurements by 35.
