Problem Description

When printing the screen from any of the 3D modules (Ram Steel Column, Ram Frame or Ram Concrete), the print preview and print to paper shows an image which is too small as if zoomed out. 


When using Print Screen or Print Preview, the program converts the display image into a white background image and then scales it to fit the paper. It does not automatically trim blank space from the plot so any blank space on the sides of the image will remain on the sides of the plot. When printing a tall aspect ratio image on a wide screen monitor to a portrait paper the problem is most noticeable.

Rather than using a full screen window, adjust the module widow to better fit the image of what you want plotted before using Print Preview.

Zooming in and using landscape paper orientation can also help.
