  2. I want to print a bunch of profiles I made in Civil3d. The title of each won't appear in print preview or when printed. Anyone know why this may be happening?
  3. I am attempting to do a preview print test of my AutoCAD drawing which I have made: SOLA4012 Pluto205.dwg 1. I cannot seems to print it in colour. Can someone tell me what I am missing? 2. My printing into PDF seems to be restricted by the dashed lines. How can I remove or expand this area? 3.The texts are also very crunched up and not as clear as AutoCAD. I am using the: DWG to PDF.PC3 setting > Paper Size ISO A4. How can I fix these output issuses? Many thanks!
  4. I have a drawing file of AutoCAD 2012 with different coloured lines. When I take a print using "monochrome" option also, I get my yellow lines as light black which I don't want. I want all the elements to appear as black of same brightness. What should I do? Thanks in advance.

    One Click Printing

    Hi All, i was wondering if i could get some help with this routine. i'm trying to create a view by using a boundary. what i'm trying to do is make a one click print lisp by picking inside of a rectangle around my title block and creating a boundary thus the view to use for printing. thanks, Brian ;;;--- Printpage.lsp (defun C:prp() ;;;--- Turn the command echo off (setvar "cmdecho" 0) ;;;--- Get the inside selection point (setq pt(getpoint "\n Select Inside of Rectangle : ")) ;;;--- Create a Boundary (command "-boundary" "Advanced" "Island" "No" "Nearest" "" pt "") (command "view" "entlast" "pt" ) (command "-view" "r" "pt" "plot" "yes" "model" "Laserjet 5.pc3" "ANSI A (8.50 x 11.00 INCHES)" "inches" "portrait" "no" "v" "pt" "fit" "0.00,0.25" "yes" "tfc.ctb" "yes" "no" "no" "yes" "yes") ;;;--- Turn the command echo back on (setvar "cmdecho" 1) ;;;--- Suppress the last echo for a clean exit (princ) )
  6. i am new to this forum ...... i am using autocad2008, my boss wants me to draw a square 100x100mm in such a way so that if i take a print out in an A4 sheet(210x297mm) it should measure exactly 100mmx100mm wen i measure it using tape..... plz help i can't seem to figure this out ...
  7. Hi Please note this is not the age old questions of model vs paperspace. I am having problems getting my head around why this particular drawing refuses to display paperspace objects that have broken linetypes, hidden, dashed etc are all displayed the same, as continuous. I can copy the drawing entities to another file and they display fine, what is even stranger is that they print fine. I have run through all the various LTSCALE commands, CE, MS, PS etc. I then thought it was a visual style problem but apparently that can't be it as they are not possible to be applied to Paperspace. At that point I thought about MEASUREMENT and that sort of thing. None of these make the linetypes display properly. I am at a loss to what it might be!! Any ideas of which setting has been thrown in this file? Thanks in advance. Test.dwg

    Template size

    I am a student using AutoCAD 2010 to create drawings. Unfortunately, when I attempt to print, the template I was provided does not fit onto one page. I have reopened the template as a blank drawing and attempted to plot the template to determine if I had messed up the scale of the drawing. It is not the scale. The blank template at 1:1 still extends to a second page. Is there any way that I can continue to use this template without messing up the scaling of my drawing? Thank you very much for any suggestions.
  9. My viewports wont print to the correct scale. I measure it out in paper space, and all the linework measure perfect, however, when i plot it off, its off by maybe 5 or 10 percent. This hasnt happened in other drawings. I've checked plans for other jobs. Also, i have run audit, but to no avail. I just tried copying some stuff into another drawing, but it still plots funny. i've tried to plot a portion on our smaller printer, but it still prints off. only this time, the other way, its 5 to 10% too big. has anybody ever had this problem???? Thank you so i checked more into it, and it looks like the vertical scale of the drawings is ok, but the horizontal scale is off literally 3 or 4 percent. not a whole lot i know, but still, what could cause this? can inkjet plotters be off by this much? its on a d size sheet.
  10. Hi guys, i have had to learn CAD this weekend to pass my degree, i had to create an alloy wheel front and side profile views, my problem is this - i have created the wheel in model space but when i goto layout 1 / paper space and insert my title block and border, then insert my viewpoint of the wheel, and goto page setup, preview, it only shows the wheel, and without the viewpoint border / title block / border. im a total noob at CAD, but need to do this to pass my degree. any help would be gratefully received. (autocad 2011 lt) Peace
