Calibrate pdf drawing with its scale to find other missing dimensions in the pdf drawings
Hello Friends, welcome to my blog 'Mad About Construction'. I am Dipak Varsani, and I am glad you are here. 
Sometimes it happens that the PDF drawing what we receive from the Architect, Engineer or Interior Designer does not show some critical Measurements, Dimensions or Distance, so it becomes difficult to understand the drawing to set out or implement the works or to calculate the quantity of the materials. And if these all is happening with you, then you should read this whole blog. 
Because in this blog I will show you how to find dimensions, measurements or distance in pdf drawings? In the below-shown drawing, almost all the dimensions are given, but few important are missing, so we will find it out by following step by step procedure as shown below. Before we go, please click on below download button to see how to download and install Nitro Pro 12 Full Version software which will help us in this lesson.

Once you download and install Nitro Pro Software, right-click on the PDF drawing in which you want to find the missing measurement, distance or dimensions; and then go to "Edit with Nitro Pro". The Nitro Pro will open the PDF Drawing. Once the drawing open, go to Review Tab and click on the measure, and then select Calibration from the measure drop-down list.

How to find missing dimensions in pdf drawings?
Here you have to calibrate the drawing according to its scale and to calibrate the drawing select medium-size or small size given measurement or dimension. Here I am selecting endpoints of this dimension, you have to be careful while selecting this and have to choose exact endpoints, you can zoom in and zoom out by control key and rotating mouse wheel; once you select the 2nd endpoint, the Calibration dialogue box will open. In below image you can see, I have chosen two endpoints of 2,800mm dimension, which is showing in 1.10 in and after that the Calibration dialogue box is opened. Now, as the given dimensions are in mm and for Calibration, we have chosen 2,800mm, we will write 2,800 in the calibration dialogue box, and we will select mm unit from the drop-down list. After that, press on ok and your drawing will get calibrated, and you can find any dimension of this drawing.

Draw the dimension of same to cross-check the calibration accuracy.
So now we can try to find any portion of the drawing, and I try this wall partition which is not given so now lets use dimension option in review tap and then select endpoint of this partition wall to find its dimension, and it is 324.00 mm. You can save the file to keep these dimensions and can also choose, don't save the file if you want to remove these dimensions.

Draw the dimension of missing elements.
Please make note that this derived dimensions, measurement or distance to be confirmed with the relevant authority (Architect, Engineer, Interior designer or the team which has produced and shared the drawing with you).
Thank you so much for your valuable time, you can check out my other videos about Nitro Pro by bellow links. I will see you in the next blog till then you take care and goodbye.

What is Request for Information (RFI) in Construction?

Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog Mad About Construction. My name is Dipak Varsani and I am the author of madaboutconstruction.com. I am a Civil Engineer by profession and I started my engineering journey as a site engineer.
In this blog, we will look into What is RFI, the importance of it in Construction and other RFI related questions.

What is RFI in Construction? Full form of RFI is Request for Information. A Request for Information is a standard process in construction to collect information in writing. Writing RFI and collecting the missing information or data is very important for good project management and it should be followed to minimise conflicts and issues. Construction documentation is the skeleton of any construction project and RFI is a vital construction document that assists in collecting the information from the authorised party or team in the construction project. RFI can also be used in other areas outside of construction. The missing information can also be reques…

How to Solve the Problem of Virtual Lines in AutoCAD?

Hello Friends, This is me Dipak Varsani and welcomes to my page Mad About Construction. In this blog, I will tell you how to solve the problem of virtual lines in AutoCAD. Have you ever face the problem that when you open any AutoCAD files and you find some random lines appears and disappears during zooming in and zooming out? then you are at the right place to get this matter resolved. Here I will guide you step by step to solve the problem of virtual lines in AutoCAD.
To get out of this situation we need to change some settings in you AutoCAD so kindly follow below steps; 1. Open AutoCAD file. 2. Hit the Command "GRAPHICSCONFIG" and then hit the enter. 3. "Graphics Performance" dialogue box will appear on your screen. Uncheck the "Display Smooth Line Display" option and then you try to zoom in and zoom out. 4. Now you try to zoom in or zoom out and you will see that no more lines.
For more idea on how to fix lines appears and disappears during zooming …

Method Statement- Works to Build the Manhole in the lowest Basement

Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog. My name is Dipak Varsani, and I am the author of madaboutconstruction.com. I am a Civil Engineer by profession, and I have taken the journey as a Site Engineer in my company.

In this blog, we will discuss Method Statement which I had to prepare and got approved from an Engineer in my recent project to resolve the rainwater pipe blockages issue and for future maintenance if the same problem arises again. The pipe was getting blocked frequently, and the reason may be;
Pipe Size:- If the pipe size is too small, it can get choked up easily. In my case, the pipe size was 100mm.
The slope of pipe:- To flow the water with gravity force the minimum required slop is 1% (10mm in every 1000mm), and this is what we have provided during placement of rainwater pipe in our project.
Distance:- The distance from the bend in-floor up to Intermediate manhole or Petro Inter-septics tank or any other tank or manhole. If the distance is long then debris of stuff get accumu…
