View Full Version : DWF Viewer doesn't print to scale
2004-12-29, 08:19 PM
I use AC2005 LT to save .dwf files. I have tried plotting using every variation, of every option, in dwf viewer but the plot always comes out 'enlarged', not to 1:1 scale.
Thank you in advance, Doug

You neglected to mention what version of the DWF Viewer you are using.

Viewer came with Autocad LT 2005.

I received a reply from ' acad ' stating
"It's not meant to plot to scale. Sorry."
His/her reply isn't showing here, how come?

I deleted it. That information is incorrect. See this. (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=4447895)

That still doesn't tell us what version. Open a dwf, then go to Help, About.

Autodesk DWF Viewer ver 4.1
Build version; 126.96.36.199
DWF toolkit: 188.8.131.52
Whip toolkit: 184.108.40.206
Thought I might as well include it all, it might save time in the long run.

That is not the latest version. Run the "Check for viewer updates" item in the Help menu. Or simply download it directly from Autodesk's website.

I was only able to update from our intranet to this version:
build version 220.127.116.111
It is still printing over size.
Do I need a newer version yet?

I can change the scale now. That's great! Thanks!
I have to print at 36% to have it plot to the correct size. Maybe I have something set wrong in Autocad LT 2005!?

You now have the latest version available from the Autodesk web site.
Have you read the "Printing DWF Files - 2D" page from the Autodesk DWF Viewer Help File?
Have a good one, Mike

Robert, don't worry about any more replies at this time. I am new to AC LT and viewer. I have been reading more about AC LT. I found out there is a lot more I have to learn about setting up plotting before I actually plot. Thanks for you time and help. Doug
