API to rescale entire drawing according to a view for 1:1 export

I have some great API examples to export a Solidworks drawing to dxf or dwg files which I use a lot of; however I sometimes need to export so the model itself is 1:1.

 

I have the code to select a specific view and read it's scale (say 1:3).  What I want to do is to either set the export options to 1:1 and use the proper drawing view scale (like the manual method in the picture) or somehow scale the entire sheet UP to effectively make the main view at 1:1.  Is this a pipe dream or are there some methods I can't find?
