Newbie: Paper space and model space
Read 1149 times

Hello all, 

I am an experienced SketchUp user, but now need to print some house plans on proper A2/A1 sheets. SketchUp cannot do this task. :'(

I then read on the box of TurboCad DeLuxe 19 that it can import SketchUp - Bingo, bought it.

Importing SketchUp 2D seems to work well - but where do I import it to - Model Space or Paper space?

Then how do I move from model to paper to printer with border, title blocks. etc.?

If I use the standard templates, my model space and paper space seem not to work at all.

Your Help appreciated.

bring your drawing in model space than create a viewport than load the viewport into paperspace
