I am using a Mac (latest OS) and sketcup make. I drew a model 29’x27’ (floor plan). The only
way I have been able to get it to print the way I want is to export it to a jpeg but I know that’s not really right.
Here are the settings I have tried that I think should work:
–Model set to parallel projection; Camera=Top
–Page setup: US letter
–Document Centre: Un-select “fit view to page,” Print Scale, In Drawing=1”, In Model=4’
So that scale should be around 7 ¼” depending on the print
orientation. In my first tries the print size was way small. Then I discovered that if I shrank the Sketchup window from full screen to only a little bit larger than my drawing I could get a nice
print size. But it’s not to the scale I want (1” in drawing = 4’ in real life (1/4”:1’). Even though this prints a readable drawing on a standard US letter page, this is not really right either.
I hope I am missing something and will appreciate your comments and help.
