### How to calculate Plot distortion?

Posted:

**Sun Oct 21, 2018 2:22 am**Hi,

I would like to know if there is a formula to calculate Plot distortion.

Friend of mine works for a company that makes liquid plates. they have a proofing machine with 66" cylinder.

They have a chart of distortion for Polymer and the cad( plot).

I found Frank Burgos' formula for polymer distortion but I was wondering to know how to calculate CAD( Plot) distortion if the actual press that job is going to be printed on has a different size cylinder than 66"?

Thank you
