Tiled Printing over multiple 8.5 x 11 sheets

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

Tiled Printing over multiple 8.5 x 11 sheets

Postby thebaddeveloper » Mon Aug 09, 2010 7:25 pm

Hello,

I am prepared to purchase a single user license.
However, I would like clarification on one item.
As a home user with a standard home printer, would I have the ability to enlarge and print a drawing tiled over a several sheets such as 2 x2 or 3 x3 ?

I ask because I remember doing this with TurboCad many years ago and I made much use of this ability.

Any information is appreciated.

Thank You.

This is not directly possible with QCAD 2, though planned for QCAD 3.

Note that there are 3rd party applications that can split up any poster PDF to multiple sheets.

Thank you for the quick reply. What is the current state of Version 3? I assume that is in or close to beta?

Thanks.
