Default Who has the capability to tile plans?

Hi,

I was just wondering if it was possible to have someone tile plans.

If so, what format should it be in (say you're using Google Sketchup)?

This would be done before releasing plans of an aircraft to the public.

I don't have any plans to be tiled currently but I was curious if there are people out there who would go out of their way to tile plans (for free).

Thanks

I'll return with plans at some point, this month hopefully.

I can tile plans easily with Acrobat Pro. Just has to be in a printable format.

So should I export it as an image? (Google Sketchup)

I haven't used Google Sketchup in a while but that should work. I also found this link, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1201689

Looks like all software is freeware and you could do it yourself.

Oh wow, I tried the scale and tile program from RCG (not from but you know)

I didn't have very good luck with it

Well if these links work then perhaps my problem is solved

Thank you guys for the links and support

Ok guys what about going the other direction? Say that instead of tiling a big sheet into little pieces, I would like to 'sew' small pieces together?
