How do I Export Model Visuals?

1. Press CTRL + A to select all objects in your model, then press CTRL + C to copy.

2. In MS Word (or other MS Office application) click Paste Special then select Picture (Windows Metafile) in As and click OK. As a WMF element, the picture may be scaled to any size and retain excellent resolution.

  • A model image can also be printed to PDF using the Microsoft Print to PDF tool available in all the latest versions of Windows. To print to PDF simply click ‘File \ Print’ and select Microsoft Print to PDF as the name of the printer, click ‘OK’ to open a dialog to save the report as PDF. Print to a single large page by changing the page size to match the printer capability. A large format printer (plotter) prints posters or larger single-page images.
  • Click File \ Save As Web Page to save the model as a web page.
