I want to print a drawing to scale 1:1 in Sketchup Pro. I have read several articles of other people having problems doing this. The only one that I have found that has succeeded is someone who repeatedly opened and closed sketchup. So how does one print a single drawing that is only 2d and is a rectangle 5 13/16" tall, 9 5/8" on the 3rd side and 5 13/16 inches on the 4th side on a single page? Why would this not be a program bug if one were to go to file->print then uncheck both fit to page off and model extents, set the correct orientation.and then click ok to print & not get the drawing printed correctly?
I have tried
- taking a screen shot, putting that in Microsoft Photodraw, and printing.
- filing my sketchup screen and then printing.with fit to page and model extents off.
- read several articles on this forum by people who are experiencing the same issue.
- gone through all the print dialog pages for my printer, a Epson WF-5690 and sketchup looking for scaling locations and not found any.
- printing with the Use high accuracy HLR both on and off.
- Googling although I will continue looking for an answer that works there.
As additional information, I exported the file as 2d model with a file type of dxf and that file is opened with SheetCAM about 10% too big. In the model extents, the scale (though grayed out) is not 1:1.
Are there any places where the model is scaled that I should check?
Anything else that I need to do?
Is there anything that I could have inadvertently clicked that might cause this issue?
