I have been floating around here somewhat and have a pretty standard question. I can make parts and mate them in assemblies and stuff. I usually learn a new thing everyday still which I like but I would like some leadership and/or adive before I go trying this again. I am newb to drawings. I need to plot stuff to scale. I will start with 11x8.5" for testing purposes because I do not have a plotter at my house. However, I am starting a new gig where standard is Arch D and above. I am a pro with this with autocad but dont know crap with solidworks. I have printed stuff on 11x8.5 or 8.5x11 for the anal ones out there and didnt have a problem if things things were within that size. In autocad I change scales to fit pages and everything is great I just change scale on the title block and everyone is cool. What do we do in solidworks??? Help would be greatly appreciated.
Think of it this way ... the solid model is always drawn full size, so the drawing sheet has to be scaled to fit around the views. The printer software takes care of fitting the result onto the selected paper size.
