Printing to scale

Post by ca.280 »

I like to print a copy of my project to set on the material and assure the hold downs will clear.
I assumed setting the scale to 100% would give me the correct sizing but it was 20mm
under scale, Took a setting of 104.5% to get an accurate print.
Any suggestions or info appreciated.

Export file as PDF, and use the Adobe Acrobat Reader to print the PDF file. Select Poster if it needs more than one sheet of paper for the entire picture.
