    How do you figure from 1/20 scale to true size? So you can make the template real size on your software?

    Hire an engineer to do the calculations. It can save you more than it cost if something should go wrong. Make sure your liability insurance is up to date.

    1:20 scale is the Architectural scale in cm.(20 x smaller than actual size)To find that size you take your dimensions and divide it by 20. To do the oppisite you would just multiply.= 20 times larger
