    I was wondering if any one has ever tried Blue Squirrel's Cick2Poster software for enlarging models. It seems to me it could be used for this purpose. I would mean some additonal seams, but that could be worked out.

    I've never heard of it before but then again, I've never needed it.
    I have a Lexmark and the printer software already has this feature.

    I have a lexmark too but this program gives you a 1/2 over lap it saids so anyway. the lexmark only gives me crop lines.

    Overlap

    I know that it has a half inch overlap, but depending on how the parts layout on the individual pages sometimes it doesn't matter. I have also used the overlap to my advantage. I lay the pages that overlap together and then cut with my knife anywere in the overlap. It gives a very nice seam that you have some control over.

    I know it was not directed to you it was directed to the lexmark person.

    I have never gone more then about 4x5 sheets of paper. You can print them out individualy. Print one or two pages and see how they line up. I just tried the new Apollo CM, and had a little difficltly with the curved parts lining up correctly. I think I need to play with the overlap amount in setup.

    Actually the bigger the model, the farther a way it should be view. I don't think the detail will hold up under a super big print.
