Blueprint look for printing

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions as to how I could convert an existing plan so that it would print in the "old style" blue background with white lines?

Never Tried it but maybe an Annotation Set where all Line Styles are White and sending to a Layout Page with a Blue Background ? if you need it to Scale etc , Otherwise you can change the Background in CA Plan View and Print the Current Screen.

 

Perhaps use an Image of the blue from a "BluePrint" as a background ?

This^^^

 

Although, I think you'll have a bit of cleanup to do in order to remove fills from text, text boxes, callouts, etc. , and to change the color of items to white that aren't set to be controlled by layer.

Thanks for your replies.  I tried using layout with a blue background image and I think that would eventually work with a lot of tweaking.  I finally tried opening a PDF of the file in Corel Draw, then selecting all, transform, invert colors and adding a blue background. Here's a copy of the PDF blueprint.

      Does anyone else have problems with the layout side of the blueprints? It seems like every time I make a set of blueprints, print them then come back to them like a month later my main page is gone front, back, side elevation, electrical and foundation are also gone. The only thing that stays is floor plan it’s self and when I go to the main page and click on foundation or electrical it just gives me the floor plan all over again.
