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. You can also change the line thickness of different colors. Tekla Structures provides a real-time preview of drawings in the Print Drawings dialog box.
Limitations in printing
- You cannot print to several paper sizes at the same time using the Print Drawings dialog box. To print to several paper sizes, you need to modify the drawingsizes.dat file.
- Drawings in previews are in color even if you select Grayscale or Black and white through ).
- In an open drawing, you can only preview and print that drawing. Having a drawing open, and you open another drawing (for example, by double-clicking another drawing in the Drawing list ), the preview may not be updated. Select the drawing again (single-click) in the Drawing list and the preview is then updated to match the selection.
