I’ve taken a look at your model.
Your boat is exactly 4 ft long in Delftship.
So are the plate developments if you look at them in the plate developments window. The deck measures exactly 4 feet from stern to bow.
When exported to DXF to dimensions are still exactly the same (and they should, the plate developments use the same dimesnions as your model). The zoom factor has nothing to do with it. So this seems to all work properly.

Which makes me wonder: How did you measure the length of your plate developments from the dxf file. Did you perhaps use a CAD program which assumes inches as input instead of the feet used by delftship?
