1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

    If I have something at 1/200th scale, and I want it at 1/250th scale.........What percentage should I set the printing at to get 1/250th scale?

    not sure, any help would be great :)

    200 (you have) / 250 (you want) = 0.8 (ratio) × 100 (percent) = 80% (what you bash into your printer/copier)
    Elementary ;)

    Glad you reminded me of that formula, i used it to rescale a 1/100th to a 1/250th. Granted, some of the pieces are going bye bye, but their hidden anyway ;)
