  • Printing problem

    I printed the 100% layout for checking the holes if they are matching with the components. I printed the file with three different printers. All printouts are around 10% smaller than the actual dimensions.

    Can anyone advise what may be the problem?

    I am trying to rule out any printer driver issues. Could please print to a PDF file and then print this one? Same effect?


    Thank you,

    Likely your printer setup says "fit to margins" and your panel is close enough to the margins to cause the scaling to kick in.

    I print a 19 inch 3U panel to 100% to check fit in fpd 6.01. All of the holes appear to have the correct dimensions and spacings; however, the panel itself comes out 19.5 inches by 5 3/8 even though the panel properties are correct. When I print out an 8U panel, dimensions match the panel properties. Do I have a setting off somewhere?

    Hi Ken,

    Sorry you are having issues. Send your file to and I will try and print it on my end and see if I have this issue.
