SOLIDWORKS Print Selection is used in situations where only a portion of a SOLIDWORKS drawing needs to be printed. This option is found in the Print dialog and becomes available when the radio button for ‘Current screen image’ is selected. Click OK to select the scale and print area in the drawing.
On the drawing, two items will appear:
- Print Selection dialog
2. Selection frame
The Print Selection dialog and the selection frame typically appear in different locations on the screen. Both can be moved. The placement of the selection frame defines the content of the print.
When the print scale is changed, the selection frame is resized.
If a custom scale is specified, click the button Apply scale to get the frame size to adjust.
Position the frame as required.
Confirm OK in the Print Selection dialog to print.
The area inside the selection frame will now be printed.
