Printed AutoCAD Drawings Are Different Sizes

by Kaye
(Adelanto, CA, USA)

I have very little knowledge of AutoCAD 2000 and I have been given a project to put our product drawings into a catalog.

I convert drawings to PDF and then create a catalog from there.

My problem is that several of the drawings seem to be smaller images than the rest.

How do I fix these?

Plot Scale to Fit
by: Jim

In your plot settings, make sure that your scale is set to FIT the same size sheet.

This will plot your drawings Not to Scale, but seeing as how you are developing a catalog, I am assuming that your drawings do not need to be plotted to a specific scale.
