Is it possible to combine drawings with Model Space / Paper Space viewports?

Recommended Posts

I have 4 multi-tab drawings (both PS & MS) that I need to combine into a single drawing.
Is there a way to merge 2 (or more) drawings and maintain all my viewports, tabs, detail locations and VP scaling?

 

I'm thinking that I will have to redefine every viewport except the ones for the base drawing.

Is it possible to do this in autocad?


Currently, in relation to 0,0 each drawing does have details that will overlap
without moving some geometry. I'm using acad 2019 and didn't know if
there exists some functionality that will make this easier...

 

It HAS to be one self-contained drawing. No XREFs allowed per customer requirements.

 

thanks!

if you copy to clipboard each space individually it will redo the layout tabs as the same. You will have to repeat for each dwg and the layouts Mspace in them.

You can drag and drop layouts from one drawing to another using Design Center.

For the xrefs, you will have to load them and then Bind them into the drawing. As you said, you may have to move details around and make adjustments in your viewports, but you can easily copy the layouts from all your drawings and drop them into one drawing using Design Center, Command: DC.

Thanks.

 

I found this as well:

Copying Layouts From One Drawing to Another

 

Works perfectly.

 

My issue now is to get layouts from multiple drawings to all appear correctly when the details are all in the same "location" relatively in Model Space,

Looks like I will have to move the details then recreate/redefine the borders of each viewport.
