Printing .dxf files

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys. Was wondering if anyone here is fluent in Autocad 2002. I picked up a copy to print off some plans. I can print it onto one sheet and scale it myself but I'm just too lazy. I want to be able to print to multiple sheets and join them later. Is there an option somewhere that lets me do that. All this trouble for a 30 size sport plane plan. Damn the internet

Sometimes there is a set up in printer properties for multiple page printing. If that doesn't work, I put lines - say 7" x 10" - so that is in the printable area. Then I print each section and cut and paste them together where I have put the lines. This is not always 100% accurate, but pretty close depending on your printer.
I never crash...I land with style!

I'll find you the link for TurboCAD. It's very nice, MUCH easier to use, and has a print interface that's exactly what your looking for. And it's FREE

Hang on,...........

OK. IMSI seems to have removed the free version of TurboCAD 2D from thier site. However I still have it, so If you PM me I'll give you directions for access to the file. It's a bit big to email.

I said it before and I'll say it again... great group here at RCC, always there to help .After printing about 30 sheets,1 roll of scotch tape,and many frayed nerves later I have a set of plans for a plane I don't like. Think I'll do it the old fashoned way, anyone have a set of plans to sell for a 30 sized sport plane for a first time builder. I've rebuilt a few planes and I grafted a shortened Kadet wing to the bottom of a Eaglet 50 but it's a bit on the heavy side. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx again.
