Hello

 

When I export drawings to DXF on scale 1:1 the dxf drawing is NOT 1:1, the dimensions are wrong.

 

Can somebody explain me how to export it properly

It is impossible.

Certainly you have some settings wrong.

We used to have scale issues when importing DXF files from other applications (Illustrator, mostly). We'd ask the originator to create a square of known size (1" per side) along with the other geometry. After importing to NX, we could measure the "square" and scale all the curves accordingly. Once the curves were fixed up, we'd delete the calibration square.
