Enter the original size into the calculator to determine the scale size.

## 1/12 Scale Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the scale size for a 1/12 scale calculator.

SS = O / 12

Variables:

- SS is the scale size (inches, cm, etc.) O is the original size (inches, cm, etc.)

To calculate the scale size for a 1/12 scale calculator, divide the original size by 12. The result is the scale size.

## What is a 1/12 Scale?

A 1/12 scale is a type of scale commonly used in models and miniatures, where one unit (such as an inch or a centimeter) on the model represents 12 units on the actual object. For example, if a model car is 1/12 scale and the actual car is 12 feet long, the model would be 1 foot long. This scale is particularly popular in dollhouses, where it allows for a high level of detail while still keeping the model a manageable size.

## How to Calculate 1/12 Scale?

The following steps outline how to calculate the 1/12 Scale using the formula: SS = O / 12.

- First, determine the original size (O) in inches, cm, etc.
- Next, divide the original size (O) by 12 to calculate the scale size (SS).
- Finally, the scale size (SS) represents the 1/12 scale in inches, cm, etc.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
