DWF is NTS - even printed at 1:1

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.

Thanks,

Without both a DWG and DWF sample, not sure anyone can answer such a
question.

Just make one. Open a dwg, and plot it to scale from a Layout. Then open
the DWF & DWG using VV3, and measure something. The DWG will measure
corectly and the DWF will be slightly off.

Just a suggestion, try setting up a custom paper size of
31x43 with 0.00 margins in the DWF6 Eplot PC3.

Try your 1=1 Center Plot again. Does this work ?
