Title: Newbie Questions
Post by: DaleWinburn on January 10, 2015, 09:51:31 AM
Hi, I'm a newbie to the Forum and to TurboCAD.

I've been reviewing the training videos and documentation and have a few general question.

A  -  When doing multiple drawings of a part, i.e. end view, side view and top view, and multiple parts for the project, how should they organized?  All in one file, separate pages, how?

B  -  What are Paper Space and how are they used?

Thanks for your help,

Dale Winburn

Welcome to the forum.
A good rule to start out with...do the drawing  at Full Scale 1:1 in Model Space. I do detail drawings for a cabinet shop. My preference is to do all the views of a particular room of cabinets in one file, including Plan view, Elevations and Sections. I also add all dimensions and notes in Model Space. The attachment is fairly basic guide to using Paper Space, but it should get you started.  Enjoy!!

That's a great, simple, easy to comprehend, tutorial Don.
I hadn't come across that before, on these Forums.

Mighty generous of you to put the time and effort into creating the tutorial, and sharing it.
    (I'm sure many newer-TurboCADers would appreciate having the TurboCAD drawing-file used to create the tutorial-- for reference.  I'm assuming you created it, Don[?])

Thanks for compliment Alvin, yes I did in fact create the tutorial in v.12. I struggled to understand PaperSpace and when I finally got it through my thick head how it worked I thought I would to the tutorial. I think it was available on the old forum.

I share in the compliment.  I pondered for a bit why the interface appeared so familiar (I used V6,8,9,11,12,14,&15) before dropping out of that game for a time.  (I managed some very large construction contracts; no time to play.)  I am at a career turning point and am taking a look at TCad again (will upgrade from ACAD LT 2012) for 3D process mechanical drawings.  JUST starting, which is why I jumped on this link.

I'd also forgotten about the change from the old forum.  Explains why I didn't exist here any longer.   :D  Looking forward to good info as in days gone by.
