Print component to scale


#1

I want to build an Rc balsa model of the mq9 reaper. I have found a model online, and have cut it up into seperate components. I want to print the components to scale, and glue them on the balsa, and cut out the pieces. I have searched community and youtube, but cant seem to find the right answer.

Lay out the slices so they are flat and create a scene showing them in Parallel Projection. Then send the file to LayOut, set the viewport to the appropriate scale and export a PDF. Print the PDF and there’s your patterns.

You mean like making an rectangle with same dimensions as an a4 paper, and fit them there? I will try that, thanks!

Well, that’ll give you a guide for laying them out so they’d fit on the page.

Yeah. I will try it. Thanks…
