Ever hear yourself or a friend say, “I wish I could work from home all the time?” Those sentiments are legit, but we are now facing it as a reality. COVID-19 is a global crisis that has everyone working twice as hard to take care of themselves, their family, friends and still trying to do their jobs.

We’re in it with you! Our teams are currently working from home, doing the best we can to support our customers and trying not to skip a beat when it comes to giving you our best support. We may not be as rapid as we like to be, but we are here, being resilient and open to change as it comes our way. Please excuse our dust while we help you build in this brave new world.

Print to Scale

SUBSCRIPTION

Paid subscribers and SketchUp for Schools users have access to additional functionality in SketchUp for Web for scaled prints. Switch the Print Mode drop-down to Print to Scale to set up a one-page scaled-print.

In Print to Scale mode, your print preview is rendered with SketchUp's parallel projection camera. You can still pan, orbit, and zoom your model: but now, as you zoom, the implied scale of your drawing will change. Similarly, changing paper size will change the implied drawing scale.

To choose a specific drawing scale, simply type in the scale you prefer and the print preview will resize your print. Note: zooming in or out will change this scale once you’ve set it.

Click Print Scale to display the scale of your drawing on your print if you like.

Tip: If you have documented a scene in your model for printing, you can still choose this scene in Print Preview, and then switch to Print to Scale mode to create a scaled version of your scene. This works best for plans and elevations which are already composed with a parallel projection camera setting.
Note: At this time, SketchUp for Web supports only one-page prints.
