One other thought, in case you were wondering how I laid out the model in TurboCAD. I established a model and copies with the appropriate parts all in the same file. See attached image. If the sheets are done right in paper space I use viewports. If done in Illustrator, I still use viewports, but I print them to PDF at 300dpi. The PDF files can open right in Illustrator an vector format. Very sweet!
I actually prefer to do the layout in Illustrator as the text tools there are to die for, as well as the ability to set opacity easily when required. Lots of other perks, such as dropped shadows, all those little extras that a CAD specific program does not have to fancy things up.
