I just want my 8.5'' long sketch to come out to be actually 8.5'' long on my wide format printer. What print settings do I need to change to get my sketches/parts to print out to 1 to 1 scale?
I cannot use plot on this printer, I need to get this to work using print.
Also, how to do it using plot?
attaching screenshots of the settings would help.
That is a limitation of NX. You cannot print full scale in 3D modeling since the the printing and plotting functions take a raster screenshot of your graphics window.
You'll need to use Drafting to create a Full Scale plot.
You will also need to configure SDI plotters to print 1:1.
This is an old pain in NX.
Every user that starts plotting/printing 1:1 will have to set up the SDI plot. All of them will waste a few hours and paper with/without GTAC trying to wrap their heads around it. Good thing about it, once the setup is done you're good to go... until you need a new printer.
I would love to see that "print" in NX would be able to handle 1:1 making use of the standard windows drivers... I bet 90%+ of the NX users work on Windows.
Or like somebody else already mentioned; export to PDF and print the PDF outside NX.
