    That's just a mechanism to keep spambots and pirates at bay; don't worry, you'll soon have your chance to build one of the coolest spacecraft in cinema. :cool:

    Roger439, you must make 10 Substantial posts before you can download any models, and they have to be spread out. Give it a couple of weeks and then send me a P.M. and I will guide you to the spot.

    I remember having that issue. Don't adjust/touch the settings. It should print accurately. It worked for me. I think the "none" scaling was for the alternative parts.

    Yeah, when your printing 60 pages you want to make sure the are at the right dimention. As long as the parts are printing on the whole page, you are doing it correctly.

    You may need to set your image to "fit/fill the page." I hope this helps. Btw, 110 cardstock is what I used and it worked great.

    One thing is to be consistent with whatever settings you choose. Use the same printer and you will make consistent parts and the colors will match. Printer settings can be tricky and make sure you get the settings you settle on established. I used to right them down. Sometimes I still do. After a while, you get used to what you are looking for. You have chosen an awesome project though.
