I have seen that video and I guess I could make that with the shape of the products I want to put graphics on. What I’m trying to do is actually print the grid that’s on the screen as the work area.
I hope that makes sense. I used to be a welder and made jigs for repeatable parts that needed to be put together the same. So I thought if I could have an alignment grid that would be great. That’s why I want my base plate to look like the work area.
I could just burn rectangles on there but then it’s a one use board.
OK, My mechanical brain isn’t getting what your engineer brain is saying.
I drew a line on top of the display grid and then drew another line down the side. I could only select one line and the grid array window will not open.
If I make one that goes from the trop left and then down the right side it will let me select that. Then when I put in 10 columns and ten rows it built a HUGE grid to the left and down from the display area.
I forgot to add that it is using the entire display grid as the first cell in the upper right of the grid.
Now, we are going to do the same for the X row grid marks. So we draw another line, in this case, 600mm long and as shown below. Now, we repeat the process we did above. With the line selected, hit the Array Tool again, but this time we are going to make adjustments to the X Row and X Spacing to match the workspace for the X row marks, filling the rest of the array.
OK, I just did that and it worked great. I have one question about the work area and I’m fairly sure it’s going to be a setting somewhere. When I try and work from left to right making this grid and I add vertical lines the lines add to the left and not the right. Is this a setting and if yes where?
I also think I’m OK now with the grid thing.
Thank you very much for helping me with this,
