I did a 3D drawing, did a couple of layout. Printed it scaled. But it is not scaled. It is a small drawing it shoud be scale at 1:20 or 1:10 but my viewport scale is 1:200 but when I go back in the plotting menu instead of 1:1 as the plot scale it now shows 1:1000. If I tried to change it back to 1:1. It keeps coming back to 1:1000. If I put 1:1 the units are 1 and 0.001. I tried to copy the drawing only but it drags the problem in the new drawing. The scale in model space is set at 1:1 and the drawing has been done at 1:1. I opened the drawing once with Civil 3D but I think that I had the problem before. The only thing Civil 3D did is duplicate all the scales and created new ones with a _1. I need to print this drawing scaled and preferably don't want to draw it from scratch again... Thanks for your help.

I'm trying to print a 3D object in a 2D viewport. It's not the first time I'm doing it and in the past everyting worked very well. With this drawing it is a total puzzle. I can't post a copy of the drawing since it is privileged matter. With a collegue we tried to scale the viewport but it did not help. The scale in the viewport made a little more sens but it's still wrong in print.
Do you understand we don't want your entire file, just a portion and the viewport intact? leave enough to replicate the problem, no one is going to figure out your top secret client or project if you just leave a few widgets and a viewport intact
I work in R&D and it is very tricky to get stuff out of here. I joined a really small part of my drawing with one layout to duplicate the problem. Have fun!
I did not touch the layout scale until the engineer told me my drawing was not scaled.
