How do you currently print? If you use TechDraw you can create a pdf which is extremely accurate. However, usually there is a printer setting for automatic scaling, which must be switched off if you want accuracy.
I run FreeCad 0.17 on Win10 64 Pro.
I print by the simple File-Print command (with or without preview).
I have tried 'export pdf' and 'print to pdf' printer, results are even worse.
I changed to print from TechDraw and from Sketcher for no avail (it somehow permanently changed the output to 80% of the size!).
What you mean by printer automatic scaling? Is that a FreeCad or printer setting?
My DeskJet printer is calibrated as is evident by other software, so calibration must come from FreeCad.
Any other idea that may help?
