Once your download is complete, double click on the zip file and it will expand (or unzip) and create a folder or folders that contain the plans and instructions you ordered.

    The downloaded Plans and Instructions are copyrighted and may be used only by you, the purchaser. They may not be copied or distributed via email or the internet without the written permission of Arch. Light.

  • Print the downloaded files:

    It is recommended that you open and print all of the files that you downloaded. Read the Coversheet first, as it contains an overview of the project and other important information.

    The Plans and Instructions can be printed on ordinary 8 1/2" x 11" sheets. They look best when printed on a laser printer at 600 dpi. Other kinds of printers will work too, but you will get optimum results if the printer is set to print at a high resolution.

    In order to print the drawings to scale, check the print settings of Acrobat Reader. Under "Page Handling", be sure that "Page Scaling" is set to "None". This will ensure that the sheet is not reduced in size when it is sent by the Acrobat Reader to your printer. Have fun with your project!
