G’day Sergio,

Thanks for all your efforts and advice. The model is for a low cost streamlined hull around my recumbent bicycle. See my signature for a side view in miniature.

The program, TotalCADConverter, appears to work successfully for DXF files up to a certain size.

When I select only a few planks, then save as DXF from Delftship Pro, and then convert to PDF using TotalCADConverter I get exactly what I want – PDFs at real size !! Eureka!!

However, when I select all my planks in a single file, the PDF conversion produces a PDF at real size, but with no images! Not very useful.

So my solution is to produce many smaller files. I’m happy with that. I think I will go ahead and purchase the TotalCADConverter program for the purpose. For anyone else interested, please bear in mind I have not actually had a print output yet. I have no associations with the program, but you can download a trial version from TotalCADConverter

Cheers, Simon
