I a stained glass pattern, a vector image larger than the printer size. I want to print parts at 100% so the printed parts can taped back together at full scale (100%).

Put another way…I have a 16x20 vector graphic that I want to print at 100%. If I just select print, the image will be scaled to fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, in my case. Can you think of a way to do that?

And put a third way…Think of a 16x20 vector image viewed at 100%. Take a 8 1/2 x 11 of glass and place it so its ul corner matches the ul of the vector image. That’s what I want to print. Do that across and down, allowing for overlap to help guide the process of taping things back together until the entire vector image is printed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi! You'll probably want to use the Slice tool to divide your image into a few sections (depending on how you want the pages to connect), export them, and print each one of the sections individually.
