Hey guys so possibly an odd question. I make custom switch panels for vehicles mostly out of carbon fiber sheets. I’ve always wanted a CNC machine but am still saving up. So before I get one I want to be familiar with the software etc… Anyways I made a switch panel on easel, (pic for reference) I am wondering how I would go about being able to print this out on paper in full scale? The piece is 5inchesx2inches so it would fit on a normal piece of paper. I could then tape it onto the piece and cut it using the template. Seeing as I don’t have a CNC machine yet.
The last version of Photoshop I used was CS5 and was about a year or so ago but if memory serves you can set your units to inches/mm based or pixel based when you create a new canvas. Creating shapes such as circles should also let you specify size or at the very least a counter of sorts should tell you the current size of the circle as you are manipulating it.
I’ll look into it tomorrow if I still have it installed but I don’t recall that being a limitation in Photoshop or Illustrator.
