I am new to solid edge. How do I print an actual size model?  My class is working on a free flight plane and created a 1D print of the wing.  How do I get this to print in it's actual size?

Hi @FB1

 

 

first welcome to the Solid Edge Community.

 

Are You asking for a paper prnit of the wing in a scale 1:1?

 

If so, make a draft of Your wing and set the scale to 1:1

 

Maybe You need a certain printer to being able printing oversize paper formats, or YOu have to split this somehow onto several sheets of paper.

 

Is this, what You have asked for?

Hi there @FB1,

 

If posting about, or uploading "Academic" files....could you please post to the Student Edition forum, that way those with access only to a commercial license will know not to bother downloading, & trying to open the file.

 

However, in order to print [you don't say what page size you have available to print with].....but you will find it easier to make a 1:1 scale draft [DFT] view of the part [PAR] file, and using "Draw in view" [right click for the context menu] sketch some grid reference lines, to use as guides for "Print Area" quadrants....then ensuring [usually have to key it in every time] to force it 1:1. [Paper Length : Design length]

HI @SeanCresswell

 

 

I would not be able to give a better answer.

 

... and it always is a pleasure to read text from a native English speaker and learn how to use this language!

 

And BTW @FB1 as mentioned by @SeanCresswell, it normally is better to post academic questions with academic files in the academic forum group.

 

And don't worry, we are looking into that too!
