I have scale rulers for lumber takeoffs that read in 16" o/c ( 1/4" scale ) But, for reasons I am unable to fathom, some architects draw in an odd scale like, in this case, 3/16"=12" So I think - how hard can it be to make a take off ruler that has spacing 16" o/c at the 3/16" scale? Well, it’s harder than I thought - I can’t get it to print to the correct scale. I drew a line 56’ long divided it into 42 spaces, (16" o/c) used the grid tool to pull lines at 16". If I try to print it in sketchup, it wants to use 4 sheets of paper, if I export it, it is not to scale. I try to zoom extents so it will fit one sheet - nope.
So I think I will send it to layout and print it. I had set the scale for 3/16, and still no luck - it won’t print to scale. How can I make this workout?
