I was told AutoCAD assign a scale to objects, but I need to compose a sheet with different scale diagrams on the same sheet, which function to use?

For the next person that asks.

The solution is to use a paper space layout and one or more viewports. Keep in mind that back in model space everything you draw should be drawn full size and not scaled as one would do on a drafting board. Viewports, not objects, are assigned scales and after having done so the viewport display should be locked so as to prevent the scale being accidentally changed. Then it is just a matter of printing from the layout at a 1:1 scale (1 unit = 1mm).
