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!!

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

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.
