Re: emergency question time sensitive exporting an image to scale

Model your part in 2d, include a 1cm square `square([10,10])`, render, export as SVG, open in your favorite vector program, use the 1cm square to find the scale, apply that scale, print.

Re: emergency question time sensitive exporting an image to scale

Hypher
Your web browser can open and print SVGs. Use that to calibrate the scale and update it in OpenSCAD (print a square and measure it, then adjust in OpenSCAD)

You can make a 2d porjection by using the projection() function.

Best of luck.

Re: emergency question time sensitive exporting an image to scale

terramir
actually I solved it by using the export image function after viewing
the right angle and removing the crosshairs and then resizing in gimp
to 10 px per mm and auto cropping the image so I ended up with a
3500x4041 px image that is the right scale.
35 cm x 40.41cm which is the perfect size for a hexagon with a 202mm
side. so let's mark this as solved but a function to export the image
to scale would be good.

Re: emergency question time sensitive exporting an image to scale

You should maybe consider downloading and learning InkScape in the time it takes to do all this trial and error stuff, and have a purpose designed program for 2-D, sub-millimetre accuracy printouts straight off the bat.  It will also be very handy for you to feed 2D work back into OpenScad.

I export to SVG, open with Inkscape, File/Document_properties - Select 'A4' (or whatever you use), drag the image to position on page as needed, File/Export_Bitmap (select 'Page', Filename, click 'Export'). Done.
Admin - email* me if you need anything,
or if I've done something stupid...
