Getting your drawings and geometry onto a printed page requires laying them out and scaling them properly, which is done using familiar tools like layouts and Paper Space viewports.
- [Instructor] Now that we have our part,…we need to get it ready for print…and that means getting it into a layout.…This is another process where the interface…matters a little.…So I'm going to show you this in both 2016,…which is representative of the process…for all versions older than 2016,…and then in 2017, which should be representative…of the versions going forward.…In 2016, we can either click here…to see a list of all our available layouts.…Or click here for the quick view window.…
From here, we can right-click on any of the layouts…and print them, edit their page setup,…or I can drag and drop them to reorder them.…If I double-click, I will make that the active layout.…We can also switch back and forth using the list here.…In the layout, we have a visor across the top…with some shortcuts to commonly used tools…like new viewport, edit the page setup, and print.…Let's jump back over to AutoCAD 2017…where we have the model and layout tab…across the bottom here, more similar to AutoCAD for Windows.…
We can simply click to jump from model to layout…
