Do any of you use the Blender Addon DXF exporter.

If so have you ever used it for precise measurements.

We have a laser cutter at our hackerspace and the software it uses can import a dxf file.

In blender I make the design and export it , but can not seem to figure out a way to set the output scale. I have turn on Metric Measurement and used the display edge length in blender but have no luck.

Thanks for any help or Links on how to solve it.

I frequently use Blender DXF import, but I had never used the exporter myself until now.
From my very superficial tests the exporter seems to respect Blender units, in the CAD software I tested (Draftsight) objects seem to retain the same measurements.

Have you tried importing it to different software to see if the scale problem persists? Or perhaps check if the importing software has any scale or units settings while importing, or set the default units for the drawing file it'self (maybe it's set for imperial inches and feet instead of metric system,?)

Other than that I don't know what else to suggest, check if Blender objects are scaled 1to1 (CTRL+A > apply scale), from what I've gathered there seem to be no units export options for DXF because blender's DXF exporter always uses the scene's size.
