Ever use a Visual Style such as Hidden and when Plotted the Object does not match the Dimensions? However before you Print everything looks fine. This can be caused by a Default Setting in the hidden Visual style.
Notice the Image looks fine here in Figure 1
Notice the offset here in Figure 2 the Print Preview. This is caused by a Setting in the Visual style
Notice Figure 3 the Silhouette Edges are set to 3 which causes this issue.
Changing the Silhouette Edges to 1
1.) Type VISUALSTYLES at the command line and select the <Enter> key
2.) Highlight the Hidden Style at the top of the Visual Style Palette
3.) Under the Silhouette Edges section change the Value to 1
Now when printed the Dimensions should match the Object
