Noticed the conversion of that article hadn't gone well, redid it manually and corrected the link since this is one of the most viewed articles.

David, did that answer your question?  The first step to take is to create a 1:1 viewport of your design.  So if you have a 1" square, it will scale as a 1" square on the sheet.  Then, you have the problem addressed above, which is whether the printer is going to process the scaling properly.  Usually I have to slightly tweak things if the printer's x and y axes are not properly calibrated, even after getting the page settings and printer settings to be correct.
