I bought sketchup pro because a friend turned me onto it seems to be more user friendly then auto cad or solid works. I’m using sketch up in its 2D form for drawing parts to be cut on a cnc plasma table. I use a program called sheet cam TNG which takes my dxf file and converts to a gcode it then goes to a program called Mach3 which runs my cnc plasma table.
When i say draw a object say a 5" circle I click file, export, 2D, options to make sure it is 1:1 which i can’t adjust size in that box and save as a dxf. I then open in sheet cam and the circle is always 2" bigger then what i draw it up as. How do I get around this problem?? Solidworks and auto cad the scale is dead on but those programs are way over my head to run. I really feel I have wasted my money on this License if I can’t get it to the correct scale.
Anyone else having this issue?
