First, I plot a full size drawing to scale (from Layout: 30x42, 1=1,
Extents, & Center the Plot) using the DWF6 eplot PC3.
Then I open the DWF using Volo View 3.
When I measure the drawing it is BARELY off scale! I wont recommend my PM's
to review and measure shared DWF's.
Why is this happening??.... It should be to scale, right? I'd like to have
measurable DWFs - this would be a huge benifit!
Btw: The DWG, viewprort, etc are accurate. and if I open the DWG using VV3,
I can measure accuratly.
Can some one else repeat this and tell me if I'm just crazy?!? thanks.
Wow man - you're all over the place. Actually, our estimating department
does take-offs using VV2 (for now). They'd get DWG's sent to them, or
they'd go open them within the Project Folders. Now that VV3 has the
ability to measure in a layout, over a scaled vport (in a DWG or DWF) I'd
like to simplify the process of getting them drawings to review. To have
the PM just email them a DWF is alot more appealing than sending them
drawings or directing them to a project folder, and perhaps, grab the wrong
Having scalable DWF's could also open up the possibility of sharing accurate
scaleable "read-only" files with others, knowing the security of a DWF.
