You have to set it to fit you, do not get upset, it takes time and patience...

So you are saying to add quite a few xtra inches then work down til you find one that fits you? Also does this scaling problem happen on all objects?

yes, it does, read the tuts, it will tell you, the helmet will also end up being the biggest piece needed to make ;)

Scaling is easy, just read the scaling thread, it took me 5 minutes to understand and I havent made a mistake since.

You must position the pieces to the very left of the page. As close to the edge as you can. That worked for me. Now I just need stupid hot glue sticks!

*sigh* I'll try.

EDIT: I did that with one piece and it worked. I have a question. Did you just put one piece per page?

I did that with the larger pieces but I tried to put as many on one piece as I could without going to far to the right.

Actually I need to know what is a very good and cheap glue. And when your printing is done tell me if my little trick worked.

Thank You and Thank You. Anyway how fast does this glue dry?
It drys in like 10 seconds after that it becomes sort of like dried up gel you can kind of mold it when it's at this stage.

I did the same thing. But I have to vary my scale. I am about 5'10'' but I have a long torso and shorter legs and shorter arms and im pretty skinny. So on the arms so far I have had to trim alot off to make them fit me. Also this is the glue im using. You have about 5-10 seconds to get the piece where you want it before it will keep it there for good.
