What makes engineers or AutoCAD users print their drawings?
When communicating a design to a client or colleague, you want them to have an easy, clear and smooth experience. You don’t want to waste valuable time, and you don’t want them to not see the design exactly the way you intended. And if you’re getting input from them, you don’t want to redraw them later on your file – that’s more time wasted.
When we set to design Butterfly, we wanted to create a tool which enables users to communicate digitally without printing to paper or file. And still, there are some who prefer to print their drawings or export PDF files. For them we also included a very basic printing function. The printing function only prints to the page what’s visible on the editor screen. It will print:
- The drawing that is visible in the screen boundaries. If your browser window is small, it will affect the output of the print.
- The current layout.
- In the currently selected plot style.
We want to hear your thoughts on printing:
What would you like to see as part of the printing function in Project Butterfly? Does it have to be a fully-featured plotter or could it be more basic?
