I am attempting to print a template full size but when I print it the scale is off. I have tried it on 2 different plotters and printing directly from AutoCAD and from a PDF file with the same results.
Your file is quite the dimensional mess: all your ordinate dimensions are stacked for example.
Your file did not seem to contain any usable plot parameters: what scale are you trying to plot, and what sheet size? I notice you don't use paperspace either, so it's hard to dissect the problem with just your DWG file. Otherwise, it seems to plot just fine, and to the scale I chose, in a quick test. See attached.
Thanks for youor reply.
The dimensional mess was intentional as the dimensions were taken on site and are for my use only. They are used for hole center locations only.
I used a 17" wide (X 180" custom size) roll of paper to print the 146" stringer at a scale of 1:1. My intension was to take the print to site and confirm the hole locations for glass templates. The 146" printed to 145 1/4" which proved to be of no use to me on site. Shouldn't this dimension print true to 146" at a 1:1 scale in model space?
I did not use paper space as the prints are meant to be tempates for site use only, no title block needed.
Sorry, I couldn't open your file as I use AutoCAD 2009 LT. AutoCAD is only a drafting tool for me. I do not use many of it's features but it works fine for my needs.
