AutoCAD 2022 – Printing Using Solid Viewports

Blog 3 of 3 – AutoCAD 2022 – Printing Using Base Viewports

It is a bit disconcerting when you start working in 3D in AutoCAD. Not only does one need to model in 3D, but one must learn how to print the model elements. This can be a confusing matter.

In this series of three video blogs, we look at the different ways in which one can print 3D drawings.

The solid viewport is how we used to generate drawings from 3D back in the day. One needs to have one’s wits about one when using these viewports, but they can be very useful. A disadvantage is that they generate model lines in the model space. In some of my drawings, there were almost a million extra lines that were generated for a typical residential property with isometric and other views generating the lines. I would probably not use them today, when we have the base views end their associated isometrics, orthogonal, and sections available to us.
