Draft 2D plan to drawing

Postby HDM » Thu May 30, 2019 3:18 pm

Ok, so im completely new to this and probably out of my depth a little so any help is appreciated!

Stumbled upon freeCAD looking to do a simple plan view of garden area that i want converting. I've managed to draw a 2D plan out as per measurements of garden and added dimensions to various sections.

How do i now add this to a drawing sheet for saving/printing. Only work around I've got currently is to export to pdf but it lowers the quality so much some of the text is hard to read

My plan view is as basic as they come, mostly made up of rectangles and lines with the dimension tool showing various lengths

Thanks in advance for any assistance

TechDraw Module, that is if you managed to follow at least #2 in the instructions that are linked at the top of the page. ;)

Hi
You do not tell us which workshop you use
If you want to make an unpretentious design, you can use the Sketcher workshop and its tools of dimensional constraint, then use the Windows capture tool (if you are under windows) and an impression, you will have a very clear drawing but without scale, and if you use Paint (for example) you can add anotations
