1-8 Drawing Limits
You can use drawing limits to set the boundaries of a drawing. The drawing boundaries are usually set to match the size of a sheet of drawing paper. This means that when the drawing is plotted and a hard copy is made, it will fit on the drawing paper.
Figure 1-21 shows a list of standard flat-size drawing sheets for engineering applications, Figure 1-22 shows standard metric sizes, and Figure 1-23 shows standard architectural sizes.
A standard 8.5″ × 11″ letter-size sheet of paper as used by most printers is referred to as an A-size sheet of drawing paper.
