Sheetcam update now scaled very large

Post by Trae Reed » Fri Sep 10, 2021 3:01 pm

I just updated and now imports are extremely large. A 10 inch circle imported into sheetcam is roughly 38 inches. I remember the ability to change DPI in the past but I can find where to do that now. is that the right thing to do? Can anyone lead me in the right direction. Thanks

It is probably your drawing scaling. When you open the drawing a box pops up with a number of options. Make sure the scaling is set to 1:1. If your drawing is still slightly out you may also need to change the pixel size.

When I open the drawing I get the drawing options popup. There is nowhere on the tab to change the ratio to 1:1 except under the custom tab and when I change it to 1:1 a 10 inch circle becomes about 1 1/2 circle. Is there another place the scaling can be changed? Also, all of my old files come across correctly. Thanks

I figured out the problem. It was an Inkscape update that caused the problem. The update changed the default template sheet from px to mm. When I changed the default template back to px everything works correctly again. Thanks for the help.
