    This is a Plugin to be used with SketchUp to produce scaled print-outs from your drawings.

    Do use the tools in SketchUp to have the part Square to the camera.

    It is what I used when I hand cut my CNC plates. It works very well. I had to download both programs for my computer.

    to get correctly sized printouts you need to turn off the camera perspective.
    if you don't you can never print at 1:1 true size ratio.
