In need of someone good at CAD drawing
« on: August 28, 2019, 09:27:37 pm »
Gentlemen,
 
I'm working on revamping some reduced range Blunt system targets to be used at twenty five yards for postal matches.  Most public ranges, especially indoor ones, only allow you to shoot at twenty five yards, so I want to scale the targets for that distance.  Scaling them is no problem, but drawing them is, thus the appeal for help.  PM me if you're good at that sort of thing and we'll discuss what I need done. 

Thanks!

My Good Niederlander -

I am not sure CAD is even required.... many if not most computer printing programs allow you to modify the print scale down from 100%

what scale do you need?

Scaling them is no problem.  They need to be cleaned up and redrawn to get back to clean edges, proper labeling, etc.

It could be useful if you posted a photo of the target your trying to reduce, might provide encouragement for someone.
In addition to a formal CAD software/drawing, one might be able to create a facsimile using other graphics software.

Last target I worked on was the 25 meter sight in used with M4/M16. But, I don't have CAD software now that I'm retired.

Hopefully we still have a target that fits on one sheet of paper or else we will need to print and join halves or quarters. Neither of which is a problem.

Will the current target still be available for use, I don't mind my 2 or 3 yard handicap for shooting at 15
