Default Graph paper generator

I found a pretty decent online graph paper generator. Here's the link:
Engineering Graph Paper

It will let you set the number of lines between the major outlines to however many cells you want, 16ths, 8ths, quarters, etc. The first picture below is what will come up when you click the link.

The second picture shows what the settings would be if you want to print a graph with blocks of approximately 1 inch, with cells of 1/16th inch. It will have black borders around the 1 inch blocks, and gray lines for each 1/16" marker.

To do this, you would make sure that:
No. 1 Select Type is set on "Engineering Single Color/Weight Lines.
No. 2 Unit of Measure is set to "Cells per Inch".
No. 3 Grid Size 1 is set to 1. This will make each block on the page about 1 inch square. Grid Size 2 is set to 16. This will make smaller lines for the 1/16" cells.
Set Color 1 at Black, and Color 2 at Gray. This makes the 1 inch block black and the 1/16" lines gray.
On the right side of the screen, set the Line Weight at "Heavy", to be able to distinguish the 1 inch blocks better.

If you need to know more about the setup, click on "Additional Instruction" at the bottom. When you're ready to generate the graph, click on the gray "Submit" box just below the Grid Shape box.

The third picture below shows what the resulting graph will look like. If you want to change anything about it, click the Back button to get back to the setup page. When it looks right, click on the double right arrow, >>, right above the slider bar and you'll get the option to print the graph, or download it to your computer. I set up several different layouts and downloaded them so I can print them when needed.

You can set these up for different sizes of main grids and different graduations. So it's good for all sizes of projects.

The fourth picture is an advertisement from a woman here in Louisville that my daughter heard about in a dogs-only bakery that operates here. My daughter took her greyhound there for a Halloween costume competition and found out that the woman really does do this as a business.

Thanks for the link. I have a need for it today (the graph paper not the Pet Psychic).

We have a Three Dog Bakery here as well...it must be a franchise. The fruit loops are not part of the package...

Jim,

Great find!

I know it is a pain when you want a piece of graph paper and have to go to town and then have to go to several different stores looking for the right size grid. Sometimes you have to settle for a different grid just so you won't waste time looking at another store.

And then you use the one sheet you needed and store the rest where it will never been seen again and the process starts over again.

I like the isometric grid and it can be hard to find.

Thanks for sharing.

Mike

A handy link, Jim. Thanks. I like how they can be printed out as color grids as well as black and gray.

I forgot to mention that the kids won the competition. My daughter is a little smarter than the old man. She went onto a Star Wars Fan forum online and casually mentioned the contest with the link to where people could vote for them. They got 246 votes in one hour, and ended up winning by 370. Picture below:
Princess Leah, my daughter
Darth Vadar, my son
A Walker, their greyhound

Doesn't look like much of a greyhound until you know that my son is 6'3", and my daughter is 5"11".
