AutoCAD LT 2015, Windows I have detailed a part 1 to 1, used a new layout in paper space. Changed it to Arch 24x36 size. Created a window the full size of the 24x36. Scaled the part to the size in model space so that it would fit it to the full size of the drawing. In the plot setting I selected my printer, made sure that the paper size is 24x36 and that it is printing the layout and 1 to 1. I run a preview and it shows that it is taking up the full print page. When I print it only uses a 1/4 of the page!!! What am I doing wrong please???
Miniver posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi. I was up to 4am tryin to fathom this out and have deadlines looming. Despite having the manuals and other books I cant work out what settings I need. Simply put I want to draw some things that are about 1- 2m square and print on A1 at about 1:10. That feels like they should fit Ok. Now, what setting should I use? I worry I may have reset something my mistake. Can someone give m an idiots guide to how the page should be set up please? Drawing units are decimal- but should the block scaling box be m or mm [or does that not really matter unless I'm doing block scaling?] Do I draw in m or mm ? my drawing seem to be either too big or too small so when I open the view port and click 1:10 they are either HUGE or tiny. I know this isn't right and suspect it has something to do with Page Set Up Manager units in the model/paper space. Any pointers please? I'm doing a uni course and live 100 miles from campus and need to get this stuff printed by end of today. many thanks
