    Default HOWTO: Plot big drawing to HPDeskject printer?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm a beginner. Very ignorant about ACAD.

    Have a drawing of an Aggravation board game to scale.

    Want to print it but have no plotter. Just have an HP DeskJet 882C capable of printing a normal 8.5 by 11 paper. I am at home just trying to learn.

    Would think you could easily print various pieces of it and tape together but can't figure out how.

    Any help appreciated.

    ShaneS,

    You could draw several 8-1/2 x 11 rectangles & place them over your (full scale) 1:1 image - ensure they are on a layer that doesnt plot - overlap them slightly & print away.

    put those "boxes" on defpoints layers.
    you see them, but they dont plot.

    Pick a scale that will fit onto your paper and go down to a copyshop.

    That's the easy way to do it.
