AutoCad :: Different Viewports In Paper Space To Show Different Aspects Of Drawing

Sep 19, 2013

I am using autocad 2011..I have a problem with printing to scale.I have completed a drawing in model space with a 1:1 ratio, all my units are in mm.I have created 3 different view ports in paper space to show different aspects of my drawing, each view port has a different scale.

The whole drawing is to be printed on A2 size paper.

My main viewport (which contains the primary aspect of my drawing) is to be drawn to scale. When I click on this view port Autocad states that has a scale of 0.008583 – what does this mean? See picture 1..When I print the document the scale is set to 1 inches = 25.4.

All I want to do is print my drawing so that it fits onto an A2 page, but the main view port is to be printed to a scale. I want to scale to be sensible some like 1 in 200 or 1 in 50 etc so that other people can use a ruler to work out the real life dimension.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: 2 Of 3 Viewports In Paper Space Do Not Show Up?

Mar 11, 2008

2 of 3 viewports in paper space do not show up in print preview, nor will they print. The viewports are all on the same layer, defpoint layer. Even if I create 3 new viewports and erase the old ones, still can only print preview one viewport and only one viewport will print.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Paper Space Viewports - Wipeouts In Model Space

Jul 13, 2012

I have several viewports rotated in paper space. When i set them to let say 1:100 scale go to paper space and then click into viewport it comes back to zoom extends of model space and i have to set it all up again and rotate it.

Second problem is that I've created wipeout in model space when i go to layout (paper space) ti looks just how i want it.

When I go to preview or plot it doesn't recognise any wipeouts?

AutoCad :: Multiple Viewports To One Viewport (paper Space)

Apr 12, 2013

I am currently working on a .DWG in Civil3D which has 12 viewports. This particular .DWG causes my computer to lag quite a bit. I was wondering if there was a way of combining viewports in paper space (i.e. taking areas from multiple viewports and displaying them in one viewport), or if I am stuck with the individual viewports? I am just looking to speed up the process, it takes a long time to load the .DWG and work within it, the problem happens to others as well.

.DWG info:
Large area with many smaller sites (retention ponds and such)
All sites must remain in the paper space layout
(I've tried deleting viewports, and that does speed up the process, but again, I need to keep all sites intact).

Computer info:
Windows 7 64-bit
8GB Ram
Intel Core i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800

AutoCad :: Assign Viewports In Paper Space To A Separate Layer?

Apr 26, 2013

Is it possible to assign viewports in paper space to a separate layer?

Explanation: I have a paper space with one singular viewport. On the same paper space I added three other viewports that I scaled in but only need for one thing. Can I assign these viewports to a layer and apply them when I need them or do I have to make a seperate paper space for each task.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Rotating Paper Space View (not Just Viewports)

Jul 31, 2013

I have wall section sheets that are best viewed in portrait mode, but use the same landscape page setup as the other sheets in the set.  So the viewports for the sections are rotated 90 degrees and difficult to read on the screen.  Is it possible to rotate the paper space UCS and rotate the paper space "view" to match the UCS, like you can in model space? 

I don't want to rotate the viewports and title blocks themselves & set up a portrait page setup.  This is because I'm using Acrobat's PDF maker for batch plotting and not using the same page setup for each sheet makes one click, fire-and-forget publishing impossible.  And I don't want to use DWG-to-PDF because it doesn't have any configurable image compression settings that I know of.

If it's not possible, then it's not the end of the world.  We have AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD LT 2012 & 2013.

AutoCad :: Elements In Model Space Don't Show Up In Paper Space

Aug 21, 2011

I'm working on a plan that contains an xref with some elements that are not visible in paper space at my chosen scale. The xref is an annotated structural grid. It is entirely visible in model space, but in paper space only the grid is visible, annotations such as dimensions and section cut indicators are not. Strangely, or maybe not, when I change the scale in paper space, these elements appear.

Other presentation tabs exist, created by other people, that use a different scale and those presentations properly display. The annotations are blocks in the xref document, and I wonder if those blocks could somehow be set to only display at a certain scale. I don't see any such options in the block editor. Although, I have added to this document, I did not create it, nor the xref or the blocks.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Viewports - Workspace Resets View When Activated In Paper Space

Mar 6, 2013

The model space orientation is different than the paper space orientation (I have my viewport rotated) but whenever I am working in paper space and double-click inside model space to activate the viewport, it resets/reorients the view to match the orientation in model space. It also changes the scale. If I lock the viewport and then double-click inside to activate model space it does not change.

I don't want to always have my viewports locked to work on them in paper space.

AutoCad 2D :: Scaling Drawing Between Model Space And Paper Space

Apr 30, 2012

I am having trouble scaling my drawing between model space and paper space. I have it drawn in model space at 1:1, and I set the viewport scale in paperspace to 1:15. However, it does not show up as 1:15. I have drawn a 50' line in model space. The viewport is 4" wide in paperspace, so you should be able to see the whole line in the viewport at a 1:15 scale, with some space on each side. However, it does not. I can only see a small fraction of the line.

AutoCad :: Drawing Paper Space / Model Space

Jun 21, 2011

Paper space was just introduced the last time I used AutoCAD professionally. I didn't become familiar with it and it seemed like an unfathomable concept then; at least from the way it was explained to me.

So I did some drawing for this guy all in paper space...that was what first opened up in AutoCAD. After five hours and getting ready to send the files, I realize that maybe I should a done it in model space. Is it really going to make that much of a difference? If he wanted me to redo it in model space .

AutoCad :: How To Always Ensure Linetypes Show Same In Model And Paper Space

Nov 27, 2011

I've been using AutoCAD for a while now, started with 2011 and now I'm using 2012. However, the one issue I've never been able to resolve is how to get my linetypes to show in model space properly, and then how to get them to show the same way in paperspace.

I know it has something to do with, at least, LTSCALE and PSLTSCALE. I've never know the 'formula' to make those work - it takes a lot of trial and error before they work together. Is there a trick to just making all of this work, without changing scales and regenerating countless times?

The current drawing I'm working with; I'm drawing in 1:1, with my viewports set to 1:100. My LTSCALE is 500, and my PSLTSCALE is set to 0. That seems to make things 'work' but, I can't figure out how to always just make these values work.

I should add I've checked the forums for a 'magic' answer and, there doesn't seem to be one. Is this the way it really is? I thought AutoCAD would be a little more intuitive than just 'trial and error until it works'.

AutoCAD .NET :: Drawing Extents In Paper Space

I am able to get the drawing extents in the database but just fine except that when I draw objects in paper space and the extents decrease the properties Pextmax and Pextmin do not change accordingly. When I make objects larger everything is fine, I capture the change just fine. Where else to look or if there is a method to update this properly?

how can i rotate a drawing view in model space and paper space? UCS -> new -> 3 point -> and saving the view works, but trying to figure out how to do this with paper space now. My purpose if for pulling construction lines from plans, for elevations. In the past I simply rotated the drawing, but if i had a layer turned off it would mess up their positioning.

AutoCad 3D :: How To Make Sectional View Layout On Paper Space From 3D Drawing

Also, I can't figure out how to have autocad place hidden lines and centerlines for me.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Export Drawing From Paper Space - Small Details In PDF

Jun 1, 2011

I've run into a small problem while trying to export a drawing from paper space as a PDF.  The drawing is of an electrical panel for a product.  The panel is rather large, but the drawing includes some smaller details, such as a vendor logo on a component or a few extra lines on the border of a display screen.  We have a large, multi page PDF file that uses A4 paper size that I need to insert this drawing into, so the export must be at this size.  When exporting, I have CAD set to use monochrome and ignore the line weights, which solved my initial problem that the parts would show up as solid black splotches.

Now that the back story is over, here's the problem.  When I export the pdf, everything looks great except these small details around the components.  For some reason, the lines in the components will shift to one side or the other, causing breaks between features.  Most of these breaks occur between an arc endpoint and a line endpoint.  The export also excludes some smaller bits of geometry.
