Export of DXF scaling my sheet metal model down.

Hi guys,

Hoping someone can help me - I feel like this will be an easy one and I am missing something very straight forward.


When I create a drawing, I paste a 1 to 1 flat sheet metal model and it produces the sizing required (great), I then export to DXF and it scales the flat sheet metal to around 25mm.

I am clearly missing an integral part of size adjustment somewhere - could I please get some guidance on how to get a flat DXF of this for laser cutting that is the same size I have created originally?

Thanks in advance,

    Are you importing it in a different unit system?
