Maximum Drawing Height

If you print an order in which you use model 2007 and you find it uses too much paper, you can limit the height. Most models are broader than taller, so this problem doesn't occur because the size is limited by the width of the drawing column in the order. In models which are taller than broader or with equal proportion the program limits the height, but is not very restrictive because it could be a complex model which needs much space to be correctly understood. If the model is simple and after printing an order with it you think some paper could be saved, follow these steps:

To achieve this in model 2007 choose General->Models->Add / Change / Delete.

Type model code 2007 and press OK.

Choose Drawing->Drawing General Properties.

Now you are in the General Data Window. Click on the Drawing button.

Now you are in the Drawing Window.

In the field Max. Height O.prn tenth mm type the maximum height you want for that model when printing orders in tenths of mm. For instance, if you type 370 this means 3 centimetres and 7 millimetres. This limitation does not apply to labels or the General->Models->Print models option, where models are printed with a fixed height.

Click on the OK button of the Drawing Window.

Click on the OK button of the General Data Window.

Choose File->Exit.

Answer Yes to the question: Do you want to save the information ?

It could also happen that you need to inform the maximum height field for the contrary reason: because it is a very complex model and you prefer to devote more space to it than the program by default does. Before changing the model though, make sure that the limiting factor isn't the width of the drawing column in the order. If this were the case, try first printing the order in landscape, making the order drawing column much wider. You can achieve this by selecting the landscape checkbox in the "Setup" tab of the "Print Bar List with Drawings" window.
