Printing Elevations to Scale

Recommended Posts

Please please please tell me you can print an Elevation to the applied scale in print setup.

 

I have just gone to print at 1/100 and it just prints an Image which is whatever the size you have on the screen.

 

There must be an option for this.

What options does your Print dialog offer?

Print Image even though in Drawing Sheet Setup the scale is set.

OK - Elevation you can do it but when rendered as a technical illustration you can't.

 

Seems daft to me as I need to print out a technical elevation with dimensions (that I have to draw on my self using CAD lines and Text).

 

Thanks for the video - it cleared up this one.

Why a Technical Illustration? You said technical elevation -- guessing you intended technical illustration.

The technical illustration looks more like a traditional elevation drawing than the standard elevation - I assumed it was just a different rendering and the drawing stayed the same, but it seems it converts to an image which is unusable.

 

I have sorted it now by exporting to another program to give the finishing touches for submission to the planning office.  Just a shame it can't all be done in Home Designer Architect.

Vector View is normally used for elevations. You can turn the color off and probably make other changes too.
