plotting oversized template

Recommended Posts

hello autocad users!!

well i been using autocad for i think now about a week....

im making a template for a hole pattern i need to print, im very new to autocad features but it was easy enough to make what in needed.


my problem now is how do i print what i made?


i have a normal 8.5x11 printer, i want to print the document to multiple pages and i can tape them together from there.


i found this thread http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?t=23253

but i don't understand how to do this, can someone please help, thanks in advanced!

What that link is asking you to do is to just draw rectangles the size of you paper (ie 8.5x11) forming a grid over the whole drawing then just plot those size rectangles to your printer using file/plot/what to plot/window then select the rectangle then plot


But it would be alot easier just to get your cad drawing to a local print shop in the uk this will cost about 2 to 3 pounds for a A1 size print and get them to print it for you


There are even on line services to do it for you, google them ok ?
