How do I print a DWG from Digimap at the correct scale?

 

Downloaded a topographic map in DWG which I think downloads at 1:1250?  When I open in CAD because everything is drawn at 1:1 the map scale is effectively incorrect and 1250 times smaller than it should be, therefore to get it at the correct scale I require to scale the map up using the scale command by 1250 times?

The DWG data will have a scale of either 1:1250 or 1:2500 depending on which area it’s for.
To plot the data at the correct scale in AutoCAD you need to alter the Plot Scale units in the Plot interface.
There are some instructions here –
