    Save as "AI" ~ any options?

    Alan Stoldt

      Our Art Department just informaed us that the AI files we have been sending are not coming in on their end as a 1:1 scale.

       

      I do not see where they are any configurable options when saving as AI.

       

      Any advice or input as to what may cause the non 1:1 scaling?

       

      Thank you in advance.

          Hi Alan,

           

          I assume that you are saving from a SW dwg? If so, is your sheet scale 1:1?  I've noticed that when saving .ai from a drawing, the sheet scale overrides the actual size. I don't know if that is a good thing or not?

           

          Regards

              Mark,

               

              As Jerry Van Dyke said, "You know what happens when you make assumptions, don't you?"

               

              Actually, I was saving the AI from the Model, and I will bet that this is the difference.

               

              This was my first request for an AI file and I never thought of creating a drawing first of the flat part.

               

              Thank you, I will try this.
