Which size should I get?
The boards come in two sizes. The standard size takes A4 paper which is the most commonly used size of paper (297mm x 210mm). The large format board takes A3 paper which is twice the size of A4 (420mm x 297mm).
If you are wondering which one you should get then consider the following:
- Weight. The standard size is around 2.5kg and the large format is around 5kg. This can affect portability and storage.
- Versatility. A4 paper can be used on both boards, but A3 paper can only be used on the larger one.
- How much detail do you want to put into a drawing. Larger drawings give more opportunity for detail.
- Standard presentation sizes. Perhaps you generally present drawings of a set size.
