Need certain size .bmp's


Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a floor plan drawing that is usually plotted on an Arch E1 size paper at 1/8" = 1'. I need to find a way to easily divide the drawing into tiles and output them to .bmp's with the dimensions 780 x 538. The drawings need to be viewed on a monitor so they should have some kind of screen resolution like 96dpi or something? I hope I am explaining myself correctly. Any help would be gretly appreciated. Thank you.

Install a raster plotter. See if the sheet set manager can divide the drawing in tiles and plot them in that way. If so, print in BMP format.

Or you can use a simple Lisp to calculate the coords and send to the printer tiles one by one. Maybe even a script can do the job.

If you wish to do it by hand, create a new layer, make it current and set it to NoPlot. Cover the drawing with rectangles and use them as snap points when you specify the window in the plot dialog.

Welcome in the forum!
