It just wont work!

I am new to the Solid Edge Program and am using it to creat very simple
patterns to be laid with Fabric and cut so that we can save in labor in our
Cut Department. I have designed a pattern and tried to print it with all
demensions correct but it prints (for Example) a rectangle that I say in
soild Edge is 151in X 50in and it prints out at 38in instead of 50in (I only
printed part of it and do not know if it prints the full 151in). I notice a
lot of areas to play with scaling and I just want it to print out exactly
what I input into Solid Edge. Would someone Please Help ASAP.
Thank You,

Re: It just wont work!

Joe,
You left a lot of details out so I'm going to make some assumptions and tell
you the steps I would take. I assume you must have a large format plotter
that prints 60" wide.
-In SE create a custom sheet size of 55 x 155 in
-Place your geometry @ 1:1 scale within the sheet borders
-Print in SE to the plotter. Make sure your Print Range is set to Active
sheet. For our HP plotter I enter the printer properties and create a
custom sheet size that matches my SE sheet size, 55x155. I also make sure
No Scaling is selected
That's the best steps I can give with the info you've provided.
