This week I made a new paper template for the body by printing out the CAD drawing on a bunch of letter-sized sheets and taping them together. I added straight lines on the drawing to check alignment and size.
Despite the fact that this second try came out much more precise (I already cut it out and almost started cutting the wooden template…), I am not satisfied: I discovered my printer has a deviation of approx. 0.5% on one axis. So 10" comes out as 9.95".
So today I ordered an A0-size plotted printout of my drawing online and I expect to receive it tomorrow! I’m curious if it is spot on and if so, I will build from those plans. Otherwise I will adjust all my drawings before printing them.
