Printing drawings

Defining layouts for printing

You can print your drawing directly from the Model tab where you created it, or you can create custom layouts for printing on Layout tabs.

When printing from the Model tab, you can print your drawing exactly the way it appears, or you can modify the drawing before printing by adding dimensions, a legend, or a title block.

You typically use the Layout tabs for printing if you require multiple print layouts. You may also want to use a Layout tab for printing even if you want your drawing printed only one way. For example, if you want to include large amounts of text on your printed drawing, you can add the text to a Layout tab so it does not clutter your drawing while you work on the Model tab.
