You can print drawings as PDF files, save them as plot files (.plt) for printing with printer/plotter, or print them on a selected printer. Tekla Structures provides a real-time preview of drawings in the Print Drawings dialog box. You can also change the color-specific line widths.
Limitations in printing
- In an open drawing, you can only preview and print the current drawing. Having a drawing open, and you open another drawing (for example, by double-clicking another drawing in Document manager), the preview may not be updated. Select the drawing again (single-click) in Document manager and the preview is then updated to match the selection.
You can also use the so called "old" printing functionality where you use the Printer Catalog dialog box and Tekla Structures printer instances. To do this, see Print drawings using Printer Catalog printer instances (old printing).
