Hello everyone. I heard it’s relatively easy to print exactly to size in Layout. However, I can’t figure out how to simply insert a Sketchup model that is in parallel projection mode into Layout and simply print a perfectly 1:1 copy of it.
I can insert the model into Layout while it’s in parallel projection mode but it looks like Layout simply inserts whatever size the model appears to have filled out the screen during the last save.
For example… before 3d printing this ship anchor chain link that is about 14mm long, I’d like to print out a 1:1 copy of it while it’s in flat parallel projection mode so I can be sure I’m happy with the size and dimensions. You can see that my anchor chain link is clearly not 14mm if that whole background is supposed to be one piece of A4 paper.
So far, I pick A4 for the first Layout choice, then I insert my model (that was saved in parallel projection mode). But it does not appear to be the actual size. I was thinking that Layout would automatically correctly scale models in Layout… so I’m very lost.
What should my workflow be to print it out to 1:1?
Thanks for any advice,
