Help!
Scaling plans for foamies

Hello All and please forgive me for starting yet another post about scaling plane plans. I have gone through all posts I could find and have been unsuccessful.

My husband is currently away on business and he had planned on building this extra 300s however the plans are on one page which he has never done before, the plans have always been tiled.

I was hoping to surprise him with tiled plans for this PDF when he got home so it would be one less thing he would need to worry about.

Would any of you fine gentlemen know where to direct a lady to find a program that would allow her to rescale/resize this plan or another way to do this to get this plan to a 26 inch wingspan?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I tried doing this through adobe reader and through my printer settings but was unsuccessful

Thank you so very much for your time and patience!

Anita

Do you have this file prior to making it into a pdf?

Hi Ken,

Thank you very much for your quick response. After digging through my husbands bookmarks to find the thread he found these plans on it looks like the original plans are a .dxf file?

You could print the entire plan on your home printer on one sheet of paper , then take that to FedEx Office and ask them to print it on their large ( poster ) printer , scaled up to the size you want . You'll get one large poster sized sheet with the entire plan on it , and you won't have to tape the tiles together . The last time I did that it cost $4.80 .

You can print them right from your home printer, provided you are using letter size paper (8.5" x 11").

Hi Ken,

I hope all is well with you and your family! I was hoping that you would be able to assist me once again with another 26 inch scaling and pdf. The other one you did worked so well.....until it crashed

The plans that I was looking for is in the attached form. I am hoping that you or someone will be able to assist me with this as I have not gained the knowledge or skill of you in scaling these myself.
