How do I print a multi-page design like tiles for a mosaic?

This tutorial requires:

DesignSpark Mechanical V6.0

Try this:

Choose the print contents to cover the extents of your 2D design, rather than the zoomed in view.


Take note of the scaling factor and print as a PDF.

Open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat or your viewer of choice, launch the print dialog, choose the 'poster' type, and enter the tile scale as '100+original factor in DSM'.


I'm a Mechanical Engineer by qualification though I worked for a long time specialising in Motion Control systems and integration with various PLC systems. I've wide experience of many types of applications from packaging machines to military and some applications that I can't mention. At home, I like to tinker and make things with wood, metal, plastics, electronics and mechanical system. I'm never happier than with a hammer and a screwdriver in my hands....
