Using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013
I’m having a scaling issue when creating/publishing a PDF of multiple drawings. From my Sheet Set Manager I select the Publish Dialog Box command, then in the dialob box set “Publish To: PDF”. After the PDF is created I’ve noticed my drawings do not scale properly. A 1:40 scale drawing is reduced in size to 1:43 to 1:45.
This error happens regardless of if I set the page setup to “default”, “DWG to PDF” or to one of our other printer specific page setups. It seems to me that the Publish command automatically shrinks each sheet as it creates the PDF.
If I Plot one sheet to the “DWG to PDF” driver the issue does not occur. Our projects generate plan sets with 100’s of sheets. I would really like to avoid having to open each dwg and Plot each one, then combine those PDFs using adobe just to get a scalable set of PDFs that can be set to plan houses and outside printing companies.
