I'm trying to export a parcel map as a DXF to scale. Initially I was having issues because my projection was set to WGS 84. I looked through questions on GIS Stack Exchange and learned that I needed to switch to a local projection that is designed for imperial units (US feet).
When I set my projection to NAD83 / California Zone 5 (ftUS), it brought me closer to where I needed to be, but it was still not at 1:1 scale. I have no issues scaling it up using a google map reference, but I was wondering if there was a better workflow for this type of scenario.
I'm using MacArthur Park in Los Angeles as a reference (one side measuring ~1,544 ft. on QGIS but it comes into AutoCAD as 127 ft.)
