7220 Priting out of scale

I work with building plans where scale is important, and I've just noticed if I draw a 12" line and print it it comes out at about 11.95" instead.  I had tried to print out some templates where the exact size mattered and found them all just a tiny bit too small.

 

I've gone over all the printing options and tried to print through a variety of programs.  No scale is applied and if there is one it's set to 100%, not fit to page or anything like that.  Printing directly from my CAD program produced these results, as well as printing from a PDF of the plans.  When I printed the exact same file off our big old epson roll printer, it came out perfectly correct to scale, so it's not the file.

 

At this point I'm thinking I need to change something in the printer its self as it's applying this 98% scale to everything we print.  Really looking for a solution to this.

PCL tends not to scale, are you using a PS or PCL driver?

Have you tried the native driver and the Global Print driver?

How do I tell what driver I have?
