how to print multiple files in one sheet?


Recommended Posts

I have four simple drawings in 4 separate files.

I want to print them in 4 corners of one A4 sheet.

What is the easiest way to accomplish this task?

Create a master sheet and xref in each of the four drawings.

 

Dear ReMark

Thanks for your reply.

Sorry for a basic question but what is master sheet and how can I create it?

Dear ReMark

In a new file, I inserted the four drawing as block.

I think this is what you meant by master sheet.

I solved my problem.

Thanks again for your solution.

Yes, that is one way to do it but if any or all of those drawings were to change you would have to repeat the process. Attaching the drawings as an xref to the master drawing is preferable if one anticipates there may be further changes down the road. When the master drawing is opened it will pull in the latest version of each of the four drawings automatically.

Thanks a lot.

I thought what I am doing (Insert/Block) is xref. After reading your post I figured out the point. I have to use Insert/External References.

 

Thanks again for your informative information.
