So here's my situation. I am trying to print a guitar template, its .dwg btw. anyways if i try to print it full scale (1:1) it will onlly print part of it, since i have a normal sized printer at home. Is there anyway i can print this file full scale, with multiple pages, either using autocad or a different program? thanks.

^summary^ i need to print a multiple page file either using autocad or a diff program. how do i do that?

scissors and glue sticks



since that will work

i cant just print each part out, as i cant get it to print more than one section since it doesnt fit

make pdf files of all the different sections then print them out?

Yeah, scale the entire template so that it'll fit in an 8" by 11" inch space. Then it should print out fine. I can't remember how exactly to fit it to a sheet of paper, but that's one method i used to use.

yes and no, yes i can do that,. but it wont be to scale, so its pointless


EDIT: oops sorry double posted.

You can make a custom titleblock and change the layout of the template to fit the size of the paper cuz regular .idm's are made for like 40x42 or somhing like that

DO YOU PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND? I DO NOT WANT IT ON A SINGLE SHEET OF PAPER> I WANT IT FULL SCALE (AUCTAL SIZE)

and it wont be to full-scale if you export the entire file to a simple picture editing software? in my experience it does. then, crop the sections so they fit on a standard paper size, then repeat the cropping process for the next section, and repeat until finished. and allow for overlap.

Yeah, sorry, I guess. Go to Kinkos. They'll print it full scale.

you could export from autocad to Photoshop (if you can export curves perhaps?) then in photoshop slice the image up into the required bit's (i.e. when you slice it and you see the blue lines, make sure each one will fit full size on A4 or what ever your printing onto) once youve sliced the image, select and export each section to it's own file and then print out each picture and finally glue together when printed.

There are probably easy way's, but im too tired to google
