Hello, I have a 36" plotter printer. I take pdf Images and resize them so the men in our shop can use them 
as a template for product that we make. GIMP is great with resizing however when I go to print the images 
they aren't coming out to scale. I tried messing with the page setup and print options but nothing has 
been able to work. In the print options I go to image settings and there is a section that I can change 
image dimensions but it won't let me change them. Anybody have any ideas where I am going wrong? Thanks!

The usual solution would be to export your finished image in JPG or PNG
format, depending on the required resolution:  JPG makes much smaller
files but introduces some noise; PNG makes larger files with no added
noise or loss of fine detail.

You could also try using the Gutenprint plugin, which allows you to
resize the image dimensions.
