I have added the ruler Pdf file to my Home page. www.rslaserkits.com It is at the bottom of the page, when you print make sure you set the printer to NO SCALING or it will print off scale. We have checked it with 4 other people and they have said it came out to scale.

They printed a little bit large for me (about 38.5 N scale ft to 3" when it should be 40). Is there a trick I'm missing?

Hmmm...definitely have scaling set to 'None' but they don't print right. The second file is closer, about 3 scale inches off over 40 feet. Maybe the problem is my printer. Frustrating.

Funny that you got the "where is O scale" comment. I already have O scale on my architectural scale tool. (i.e. 1/4"=1'). ;-)

Wait a minute...

On the second file the full scale inches check out fine. The N scale is a teeny bit off and the O scale is way off (about 1/32" per scale foot). Are these really printing correctly for you guys?

must be in the printers have printed it out on two printers here and they check out fine
6 inches is right on 24 feet in O scale and 40 feet measures 3 in N. If you can open Corel 14 can send the drawing file.
I just printed one off the net and somehow the file gets changed and it came out off, had just printed one from the PDF on My computer and all checked, but the two are not the same strange.
If anyone wants the PDf sent to them let me know and try it that way.

T is a new scale out of Japan (1/450). There is a good article in last Months MRC on T scale. Some of the Z scale guys are playing with it and wanted a scale. Not much available but they say more on the way.

I added some more scales and have found that some printers need to be set to NO SCALING for it to print right.

Many thanks for this tool. I printed the .pdf version and the scale for the whole thing is right on when compared to my triangular engineer's scale used for scaling from blueprints. This is a very helpful item, and I thank you for taking the time not only to post it, but especially for continuing to work on it after hearing and noticing that it didn't come out right the first time.

Best regards,
Don
