Merging a drawing with a drawing sheet

Postby bluequad » Mon Jan 17, 2011 11:31 am

I have been unable to merge a drawing onto a drawing sheet with a title panel. How is this done? At A3 size for example, do you create the title sheet at A3 size or at the size of the original drawing as a separate layer, so that the whole is reduced to scale as required.

Surely there must me a drawing merge facility to create scaled drawings on pre prepared drawing sheets?

An A3 is 420x297. Therefore your 1/1 drawing must fit on that. Then, you print at a reduced scale if you like. I have been making drawings at all formats up to A0. I made custom templates for each sizes, the template is just like any other component block you insert in your drawing. For large sizes, I use "PDF export" as I do not have a large size printer on hand.
