    Default Another Idea

    I thought about this a bit more and wonder if it is possible to just scan the sleeve outline (with the grid) into the computer, e.g., as a JPG file. It looks like this curved part of most sleeve patterns would fit on letter size; or have a copy shop do it. Then, perhaps this JPG outline could be pulled into AutoCAD so you would not have to go back and forth so much with the printing. It looks very doable in AutoCAD 2012, but I really don't know what LT 2005 is capable of.

    Not this! I have tried it with other drawings. If it were possible I would have the scanning equipment and I would even be able to do it with 11" x 17" or larger sheets.

    Would it be sacrilegious to ask this question here, but upgrading to 2012 is out of the question due to the cost, and staying with 2005 is starting be a problem because I can't install it on to my new laptop, so does anybody have any suggestions what I should look into trying? Someone suggested AutoSketch but I haven't been able to download it.

    I don't know anything about them, but ReMark has posted a few links to CAD options, including alternatives to AutoCAD, both free and low-cost. Take a look at these threads:
