Adventures in 3d design: a continuing frustration.

I'm trying to design something - fairly complex, it's a lid for my Sous vide tank - in Fusion 360, and I'm getting the hang of things, I think. But ... I'd like to check my measurements (and in particular the internal radii) before I even think of buying a 3D printer, much let commiting to actual ABS / PLA.

So ... I'll print a one-to-one paper version of the drawing so far and lay it on the physical object. Easy!

Except Fusion 360 doesn't have a "print to paper" option, even for sketches. You can "Print to 3D" really easily, but not to paper.
It does have a "image" creation which asks for dpi, so I'll try that. Load it into Paintshop Pro for printing and ... it's not to scale, or even close. Sigh | :sigh:
