Plotting to scale


New member
I would like to plot a drawing 1:1 scale. In this way I can use the drawing as a template for cutting material. I don't seem to be able to get a 1:1 scale plot.
A little more information please...

Are your views scaled views with a scale of 1? Is your scale for your no scale views (located in the lower left corner of the display area) also 1? In your Print > Configure dialog box, is the scale on the third tab also 1?
