If you ever get an electronic version of any plan, I can blow them up and even make tile versions for you. I teach CAD design in the high schools and college and have all the software to do it.

You can have them resized over at any Fed-Ex Kinko's store. They charge .75 a square yard. I resized a set of Newtons plans for my U-76 Atlas, made a few copies and it cost me about 7 bucks...

I had Orca plans resized at exactly 40% larger at a local non-chain copy store and they put them on two sheets.

rye,
When you get the plan resized, where do you find the material such as plywood in lenths that long??

If the plans were done on original offset paper, they then have to be run through the machine twice, due to overall size. Have a local outfit here that is charging $3 per sheet to scan only.

I have been fighting to tile print my drawing to actual size off of my printer and I am losing. I haven't been able to do it.

I can scale my drawing to any dimension but after it passes so many page setups with margin settings that lay in the print software it's getting messed up. Either it prints the wrong size or it loses some of its image when trying to match up the copies.

I've given up and I'm going back to working on my plan for now. I think I'll try and add a grid pattern that will print with the drawing to help line up the copies after their printed.

I need a webpage with step by step instructions with all the right freeware to do it.
