I hope someone in the blogging area here will take a minute to read all of this.

So, I know how to make 3D planes in 3DS Max, which exports to DXF and all that jazz. I can make the 3D part of the plane innards no problem. Its when it comes to making plans. How do I make a parts cut sheet layout and plans that I can go print out as a PDF at Kinko's?I've looked all over the CAD section of the forums and I cannot seem to find a cut and dry answer on how to do this for most any program.

If someone could please steer me in the right direction it would be great. Keep in mind I am NOT an engineer. I am in the biopharmaceutical industry and do RF models as a hobby. Making spars and whatnot is extra work on top of what I would do for RF model.

Thank you for even reading this!

Just wanted to share some progress of another project I am doing. I'm creating a Saab B17 model for RealFlight G4.5 and I'm spending a lot of time getting things right. Sitting now at 16406 polygons with everything mirrored out. I can do some reducing once permanently mirrored but I have a few more details to do on the tail gear and lights on the wingtips. Then the cockpit needs some detail and antennae. Dont forget the collision mesh! GAAH! ahh I got plenty.
