Hi there,
recently upgraded to viacadpro11 and started using it again...

I'm creating a checkerboard pattern that I want printed out on dibond (for camera testing / lens testing). Basically it's just a 5cm x 5cm checkerboard size 140cm x 80xm in a 145cm x 85cm big drawing. In order to get it printed a vector format would be nice. So currently I print it as a 1200 dpi .pdf file (not a vector afaik) with a custom paper format and I also try to export it as eps file (vector format afaik).

Funny enough the .eps file is always cropped, no matter what I do, export in general or "export selection only" and previously selecting everything... could anybody tell me what I'm missing ?

I'm attaching the .vcp the .pdf and the exported .eps

thx Jo

PS.: sorry .eps upload not allowed so I had to zip that one....

You have to set the paper size in Page Layout to be bigger than the maximum size of the drawing. It worked for me with the paper sized to 1500mm x 850mm
