2D and 3D PDF prints of the project are created. The process of creating a print settings (*.pset) file is discussed and demonstrated.
- [Instructor] So now that the drawing has been completed,…2D and 3D, we can go ahead and create our PDF file.…So we'll start with our 2D version.…And I'll go ahead and review the process to create…that PSET, SET file, the print settings file, as well.…Let's start by placing a fence from our magenta points.…Just a reminder that the reason that we're doing it this way…is so that our fence will wind up…just off of the corner here.…We don't want to snap right on the corner…because it will end up splitting this line…and then it will make the line weight…for the border line too thin.…
So now we can go to Print and then we're already set up…with the correct pdf.plfcfg file.…So let's go ahead and hit Fence,…we'll take it off Rasterized…and we'll go to monochrome.…Rasterized is only used for 3D drawings.…Then we'll use the ANSI B size,…Maximize, and then set the Scale to one.…So now that we've set up all of our settings,…let's do a File, Save Print Definition File,…we'll just keep this.…
Actually, lets just move this over into chapter four.…
