Printing a 1 : 1 template from Sketchup

Postby Endgrain » Mon Oct 05, 2020 3:49 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a woodworker and I am trying to print a real size template directly from Sketchup.
I did my research and followed a couple of tutorials, but it did not work.

The piece is 25 x 14 inches.
I am on a Mac, camera is set to parallel projections and top view.

In document setup, I uncheck the "fit to page" box in the print menu and then set both the "In drawing" and "In model" to 1 ", before clicking OK. Unfortunately, those settings do not stay that way. If I reopen the Document Setup, I see that the scale has switched back to the original one.

I can not find the solution to this problem. Can anyone help ?

Thanks !

I see you use SU2020 so use Layout to produce 1:1 drawing and print it.

As nlipovac says, your profile indicates you are using 2020 so it would be easiest to do this in LayOut. Your profile also says you are using Free/Make which does not exist for SketchUp 2020. Please correct your profile. That will make it easier to give you accurate instruction.
