(Frank Drackman) doth query:
Does anyone print full size drawings of their plans? <snip>
Who needs plans? My questions are: What do you mean by
'full size drawings'?
And, do you mean 'your' plans, that you drew; or plans made by
someone else, that you bought?
If you already have plans, why would you feel the need to print
Or, do you mean print them the actual size of the finished product?
Not being the smartass many of you will feel I am, questions like
this puzzle me. I consider any plans I may draw out, full size, as is -
regardless of how large, or small, they are. Unless you're selling, or
planning on selling, plans - but you didn't say that.
I draw all of my own stuff. I start with a pencil and paper to flush out
the general shapes and sizes. If I think that I might make additional
pieces later I will usually redraw it using a 2D CAD system so that it can
be easily modified.
There are many different reasons to print on material larger than the
letter, or legal, sizes that fit into my printers. The reason for this job
might seem silly to most people, but the client asked me to. I guess that
they want to show friends/family that it is truly a custom piece and they
want something bigger that 8.5" x 11".
