    I know there is a way to do it. Does anybody know how to get a full set of architectural, structural, civil drawings onto I-books? Let me preface with....without a mac.

    Welcome to the forum - not sure 'how large' the blueprints may be or in what format, so more information may be helpful, including the laptop's brand/model, OS, and the program being used (I'm assuming a Windows laptop)?

    So, I'll just provide several options - if not already done put Dropbox on your laptop & iPad - convert the blueprints to PDF files, if possible - put the PDF(s) into Dropbox on your laptop; if both are on the same Wi-Fi network, the files will automatically show up in Dropbox on your iPad - select to 'open with' iBooks.

    Of course, you could just email the files to yourself and use the Mail app on the iPad. Let us know if either of these suggestions works for you - Good luck! Dave :)

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!
