How do I print the VRF Heat map in a large format?

  • 1.  How do I print the VRF Heat map in a large format?

    Posted Oct 09, 2013 02:32 PM

    I appologize if this is in the wrong location. I could not find an air waves section. 

     

    Anyway what I am interested in doing is printing out the heatmaps so that I can have a hard copy to present for the upgrade that I had to design. I need to make multiple possible layouts of each facility and It would be great if i could print out the heatmaps of the possibilities in a large scale format. I know I can export the bill of materials but it is in a .doc format and the image quality is restricted to a about the width of a standard page in portrait mode. What i am looking for is a plotter size or i would even work with a landscape legal size. I just need to know if air waves will allow me. 

     

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Just fired up VisualRF on my end and don't see a way.

     

    Looks like you'll have to just take a screenshot with a tool like Snippet or Hoversnap.

    3 years later...no solution? Bill of Materials gives this useless Heatmap image.

    If that is for planning purposes, what grid size did you configure for your building? Was the building set to scale, etc? I'm not seeing that blocky of an image in my BOM export (I asusme you are only exporting the heatmap)?

    It is a deployed network. We are getting complaint of phones dropping and not able to find APs. My manager wants to see heatmaps. I can zoom in fine on Airwave, but I need a printable file.

    The grid size is 3ft x 3ft, and I am only exporting heatmap.

     

    Thanks

    There's no high-res export. Best advice is to open in a browser on a large monitor and take a screenshot.

    I don't think anyone promised that feature.
