" This has been a "" frequently asked question"" : How can I print an Envisioneer drawing to scale on a large drawing sheet size when I only have a printer that does 8-1/2"" x11' s.
I have a few suggestions:
1. For those of you with AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT you can import the file and then make a plt file to send to a printing company.
2. Download a pdf writer from www.deskpdf.com
. It will add a PDF printer to your printer list so that you can make a pdf of your drawing to scale. Take it to a local print shop for printing. Acrobat Reader has an option not to scale a drawing and to print the file to the sheet size required.
3. This one is the "" messier"" of the three options. Zoom into areas of your drawing and do a print to scale of the current view. Keep printing areas of the drawing in the same manner and then piece them together.
And hope for the future - this has been a heavy request for development to either print to a plt file or allow "" Tiled Printing"" as described in the number 3 option. Either or both should appear in the next version of Envisioneer. Coming this summer with some great rendering capabilities!!!
