Size / scale issues.

When drawing a simple part, my sketch shows a 6" pipe. The drawing is in inches and the sketch shows 6". This printed at a little over 3". I went back in and used the "inspect" tool for "measure" on my sketch and the diameter only showed at 3" when inspected, but my sketch and drawing show the correct desired dimension as 6" .

Not sure why my drawings are correct but they do not "measure" or print as drawn.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

How are you printing?  Is this a 2D Drawing Print or something else, please clarify.  Maybe a few screen captures.

Hi,

please show your measurements in a screencast and share the file

Here are 2 screen shots...

1 of my sketch as drawn with a 3" radius pipe, and the second showing the dimension as 1.375 when measured using the inspect tool.

The issue came to light when I 3d printed from the stl file and the part was much smaller than desired.

I drew the part as a 3" radius pipe, and it inspects and 3d prints as 1.375 radius.

Hi,

From your words and the screenshots you can not make any conclusions.
Please share the file.

Hi,

The link has no download allowance.

If you use a personal license you have to choose the way described above (#3).

@mpinchot since i have the support case i figured i'd chime in here too. 

 

I think from what i can tell your sketch is showing the diameter of the pipe is 3". We can never know how you drew a sketch as they contain no history so this is very difficult to prove it was ever anything but 3"

Ryan,

It is the radius that was drawn as 3" ... That is the issue. Not the diameter

Ryan, and G-andresen,

Thank you for the help...

I will re-draw, I am guessing that the diameter was plotted in lieu of the radius.. will try again, thank you for your responses.

That sounds like the only conclusion i can draw. Every other dimension is related to the OD of the pipe being 3". I'll respond via the case email as well.
