Scaling issue when converting DWG file into DWF Autodesk Design Review 2013

Hi, 

 

I am a first time poster to this help forum as I can't find any guidance and need help. When I export a DWG file from DWG TrueView 2013 into DWF Autodesk Design Review 2013, the scale slightly changes and it looks as if the whole page doesn't quite transfer onto the new DWF. 

 

Can anyone please offer any assistance?

 

Kind regards, 

 

Andy

 

*please find attached screenshot to show example. True scale is 1:100 and the red dimension should be 10m, however when I've converted from TrueView DWG it is now showing as 9.405m

PLOT to a DWF instead of exporting, and control the output as you would plot to paper as far as page size and plot scale (also verify your viewport scales in from paperspace). See if that helps.
