Hello Everybody, 

Just wanted to ask and see if anyone knows how to print off the template for the DIY concrete Bluetooth speaker. I've downloaded the template but the print is way too small. I must be doing something wrong. I've already purchased the electronics and wires, just need help with the template. Any help is appreciated!

Can you upload the file you've got so we can have a gander? I can get the original of course but I'd like to see what's dropped at your end.

Ah, I think I see the problem. You'll need an A3 printer to print even parts of the template at 1:1 scale. It's possible to slice and dice it but that gets tricky.

The JPG here is huge (1.5 metres wide by over half a meter tall!) but it's got the whole lot on so you can see how massive it is. The PDF shows a section printed within the usual margins of an A4 printer.

Acutal sheet to scale

If your printer is scaling the images to fit, it won't work out - that's an easy gotcha.

Ok, that makes sense as to why my printer was formatted to fit the a4 printer that I have currently. 

Is there a way to wrap text on the image in Word onto multiple pages and drag the image until it is the right size? Or is that not possible?

 

Thanks Again

OK, there's one real offender here that simply won't fit to A4 no matter what. So I've chopped into two so you can print and align them. The others will need rotating but I think Word can do that.
