Subject: Getting started printing

When you create a drawing, you do most of your work on the Model tab. At any time you can print your drawing to see how it looks on paper. It’s easy to get started print­ing, and then later create layouts and custom print settings to enhance your printed output.

To start printing

   1   From the Model tab, do one of the following to choose Print ():

   On the ribbon, choose the Application button then choose Print, or choose Output > Print (in Print).

   On the menu, choose File > Print.

   On the Standard toolbar, click the Print tool.

   Type print and then press Enter.

   2   Click Print.

There are many print options detailed in this section, such as the scale of the drawing, print area, print style tables, and more.

Type qprint and then press Enter to print the current viewport.  
The Print dialog box is bypassed and the drawing is sent directly to the selected printer.
