Print elevations to scale

Recommended Posts

I created a front elevation and it's not to the scale shown on the drawing sheet schedule which is 1'=1/8".  Why is this?  How can I print an elevation to scale?

you will need to explain a bit more your process of getting to that point , best way is usually to send to layout in Pro at 1/8" then Print from there.

I used 3D->Create Orthographic View->Cross Section/Elevation then Print Image.  On Send to Layout - there's only Current Screen as Image.  The scale fit options are grayed out.  Is there a simple way to do this?  Elevations are standard on any plan set so I expected I could easily get this printed to scale.

I found "Vector View".  When I select the scale option and send to layout it's much smaller than the 1/8 scale.  Maybe I have the paper size set wrong or something?

Images are never to scale 

 

and Kat is right you need to be in Vector View not Standard view , see the Pics below but I think to need to refer to the Reference Manual as switching views is pretty basic but under Defaults>Camera>General Camera you can also set the normal default View for Ortho or Perspective to be Vector.

it always helpful to post pics of your efforts or pics of the DBX settings etc .....just saying something is too small doesn't really help us or you....but I normally send Elevs. at 1/4" unless the House is really big, try it just resend at 1/4 " after deleting the layout box with the 1/8th version.
