Uploading and Scaling Your Blueprint

Before you upload your blueprint make sure that it is in JPG, PNG, or PDF format. If the blueprint is on paper, you can scan it or even just take a photo of it to save it to your computer. The maximum file size for a blueprint is 5 MB, so make sure your file size does not exceed this.

Once you have uploaded your blueprint, you can scale it to the correct size. This makes it easier to draw over and will save you lots time!  This short video will show you how it works:
