  1. I spoke too soon. Setting up the custom page gives me a small image on a 24x36 PDF page.

    My settings: Doc settings: Print: 300DPI

    Doc set up: layer scale 1:1

    Page setup: 1 page horiz and vert.

    Check boz:"page unavailable in printer set up", width 36, height 24

    Print sequence: PDF995, size Arch D, Landscape.

    Am I doing somthing obviously wrong? Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the replies, both of you. The PDF looks good, but prints out week with lines looking like they were from a drying up pen. I will try up-ing the DPI in the print sequence and see if that works.

    I did the custom page and believe it will work. Will let you know.

  3. Just a reminder (having painfully learned all this a little bit ago!): the wall int. class should be on, the window main class should be on and the window placed on it,and window spec class should be on. Note: you can change the layer the ID symbol is on in Settings...

  4. Thanks for the help, Katie. Got the PDF conversion to work, although it did a small image on a 24x36 page. The printer (staff) can accomodate that, though.

    I m getting very rough lines. letters, etc, almost like extreme draft quality. Is there a setting here (in VW) or is it a printer issue?

  5. I am trying to print to PDF so I can sneakernet or email to a remote printing company. My page setup defaults to the 8.5 x 11 of my desktop printer, or goes to multiple pages when I default to Arch D. Any suggestions on prepping the file for offsite printing?


  6. Thanks, Robert. Any chance of giving us a quick outline of procedures to do, say a wide shed dormer/raised roof or large gable, using the cut holes, roof planes, and fit walls to roof? It might save a bunch of people hours of wandering through the manuals.


  7. Thanks, but they are separated, different sizes and might change during design. Also, in one instance, there is only one window set off to one side rather than centered. I would hope for more adaptibility.

  8. I am trying to do a long dormer with several windows. The Dormer tool seems bent on using a single window centered. How can I move and add windows in the dormer face?

    ALso, In top plan, the walls are hidden. How can I draw the rooms in the attic? I set the model up as single floor with roof, attic inserted.

    Should anthing more than a simple dormer be done as a roof face?
