    Hi folks
    Having a problem with a cad dwg. trying to print it off. To make the problem easy to understand its kinda like this. If I draw a square and print it, it comes out 1.4 times longer one way than the other. Very frustrating. Its an autodesk educational product I am using. Cheers

    Sounds like a page setup or auto scaling problem. I think the length of an A4 sheet is 1.4 times it's width, same for all A sizes. Try a few test patterns, change portrait / landscape orientation etc. and it should become clear.
