    Default Need information

    I am fairly new to autocad. I run cad 2009 for a landscape and design program that i use for my business. I really do not have much of a problem getting by doing my design in model space. I now there is a lot more to learn but that will come. My problem is going from model to paper to set up the drawing for plotting. Right now i plot to a pdf (pdf995) and then have it printed later. I struggle with get the page set up to print. For example ( adding title block, and getting it to the right size in the preveiw. I was wandering if i should get some training in the basics and or if there is some other form of help with the problem.

    Set up your title block in paperspace at a scale of 1:1 ie actual size then open a mview window at the scale you want the final plot to be. Then plot the paperspace titleblock at 1:1

    We use an A1 title block sheet 841x594mm. To plot A3 1/2 size we use a plot scale of 1:2 for the whole titlebock the window is still then at a correct scale but 1/2 the A1 scale.

    A1 at say 1:250 now 1:500 at A3

    In a nutshell, I create 3D models from the client's CAD files or design sketches which I then use to produce high quality rendered images. Click on the link in my signature to view my portfolio. I'm always looking for work, so let me know if you need any custom models or renders. :)
