Plots are needed in various industries. At our facility, we can print not only construction plans but also serve customers from diverse fields:
For construction plans, it is essential to have plots printed. We offer you the option to have your construction plans printed with us. Our CAD plot service is available for color prints and black and white prints. To ensure the optimal print result, there are a few things to consider when plotting with CAD.
Make sure you use the correct file format for your construction plan. Common formats include PDF, DWG, or DXF. Also, check the settings to ensure that the file has the correct units and scaling. Check the scaling of your construction plan to ensure that the print is displayed correctly on the paper or film. Of course, we will review your files before printing to avoid unnecessary misprints.
Choose the appropriate paper size for your construction plan. Common formats are A0, A1, A2, and A3. Make sure the paper is large enough to display all the details of the construction plan. If you are unsure about the required size for your construction plan, we can provide guidance.
Next, choose the right paper quality for your construction plan. Use a paper with higher density to ensure sharp and precise printing of the construction plan, especially if there are many details. Construction plans intended for presentation purposes should also be plotted on paper with higher density.
Keep in mind that there may be specific requirements to consider when printing construction plans:
Plots can be folded in various ways to facilitate transport and storage. Each person may have their own preference, and different folding methods offer individual advantages. Here are some of the most common folding methods:
The so-called Munich Fold is a classic folding method for plans and plots, known for its compact form and easy handling. With this folding method, the plot is first folded in half and then folded in a zigzag pattern. The plot is always folded in the same direction, resulting in a compact rectangle that is easy to transport and store.
The Munich Fold is particularly suitable for plots that need to be frequently transported, such as construction plans or maps. Due to its compact form, the plots can be easily stored in bags or backpacks.
To protect CAD plots from damage and wear, laminating them is the right choice. A thin film is applied to the surface of the plot and fixed using a laminating machine.
Lamination offers many advantages, especially for plots that are frequently used or subjected to heavy usage. It protects the plot from moisture, dirt, scratches, and other damages, making it more durable and keeping it looking like new for longer.
There are different types of laminating films that can be used for CAD plots. These include matte, glossy, or satin films in various thicknesses and sizes. The suitable film can be chosen based on the application and personal preference.
It should be noted that laminating the plot can make it slightly stiffer, which may make handling and folding more difficult. Therefore, it is important to choose a suitable folding method and handle the plot with care to avoid damage.
