Chapter 19. Paper Space Layouts

Paper space layouts provide the capability to plot a model space drawing without cluttering the drawing with objects that are needed only for plotting purposes, such as title blocks and sheet borders. You can create a standard size sheet border in a layout, insert a view of your model, and plot it at a 1:1 scale. By creating multiple viewports of the model space objects, you can view the objects from different angles. After establishing the views, you can move and arrange the viewports in the layout to any necessary position inside the sheet border. You can accomplish all this without compromising the purity of the model space drawing by allowing the project’s design model to exist separately from objects needed only for plotting sheets. By using layouts properly, you can quickly and easily design the sheets you need to plot model space objects.

This chapter discusses the following subjects:

  • The basics of paper space

  • Using paper space layouts
