Older dwf file don't have scale information? This seems strange to me.
What about volo view? It can measure drawing entities, so there has to
be a scale information.
What I need is the possibility to plot with scale 1:1.

No. Page size in the express viewer is 33.1 x 46.8 mm. 8.5 x 11 inches
are 215.9 x 279.4 mm.

There are two transforms involved with DWF Paper <-> DWF and DWF <->
Model. The measuring is done using the latter transform.

Be sure you're plotting your dwf at 1:1. This was my initial mistake.

You mean that an 'old' dwf file (prior to dwf 6) contains no information
about the paper size and can therefore not be printed in scale?

If so then this should be mentioned on the Autodesk express viewer site,
would have saved me a lot of time.
