blurry section view printing

Recommended Posts

When I do a wall section view and send it to layout when it is printed you can hardly read the printing it is blurry.

What am I doing wrong ?     SHEET 9 SECTION AT A.pdf

It looks like to me that the detail is an image or PDF as opposed to a CAD detail created of 2D lines, arcs and text. Images, PDFs are pixel-based and thus tend to blur or pixelate whereas 2D CAD lines and Text do not.

Yes it is a PDF . That is the problem ?

Could you possibly show tips on creating a section view using a CAD detail method , I am not sure if I've tried that.

Yes, it is called CAD drafting work :)  There is no trick or tip involved, such things can be downloaded from the WWW and then edited but I usually just create them from scratch using 2D CAD tools and Text, it is what draftspersons do for a living.

Yes that is what I was doing , I'm I possibly saving it wrong when sending to a layout page ?

I recommend that you create the CAD detail in a plan view, named CAD Detail or similar and draw your CAD Details in that plan. From there they can easily be sent to a Layout file page for laying out for printing and you can reuse them for future projects.

You might say/post images so we know what you are doing.

 

Have you reviewed the documentation? Probably some info in the Knowledge Base.
