In the inch grid paper and cm grid paper the scaling is fairly precise, but not exact. Our new Word-based templates are more precise. The isometric grid paper is scaled to inches, measured from vertex to vertex.

'No installation, no macros - just a simple spreadsheet' - by Jon Wittwer


This Excel (.xls) file contains square grids of different sizes, triangular, and isometric graph paper.

Excel can provide a useful grid-based drawing canvas for landscape plans and simple architectural floor plans. Many people may not realize that the drawing tools in Office are basically the same in Excel, Word, and Powerpoint. In Excel, you can snap to the grid by holding the Alt key as you insert shapes and lines. You can also use another worksheet within the same workbook to do calculations.

Note: If you are just looking for printable graph paper, the Word (.docx) templates available on the new printable graph paper page provide more accurate measurements and aspect ratios.

Problem with the Excel Graph Paper Template

If you aren't concerned with exact scaling, Excel can be a pretty useful tool for creating simple floor plans, landscaping plans, Sudoku grids, and other stuff (see reference [1]). I have even used it to plan how I was going to load furniture into a moving truck.

The problem with the scaling is that Excel's column widths and row heights are based on pixels rather than printed dimensions (link inches or centimeters). It is possible to get pretty close to an inch scale using the Excel template by manipulating the pixel width and height of the columns and rows, and that is what I have done in the above graph paper template (and wasted a lot of paper in the process). However, if you want a more precise grid, use Word or Powerpoint to define a table with the cell widths and heights set to specific widths.

Generate simple or complex drawings with this intuitive application that allows you to create presentations with the pictures created

DigiGraph is a lightweight graphic application that allows you to freely draw on graph paper using your computer. It provides basic drawing tools for creating sketches and drawings.

The interface is clean and simple, comprising the main menu and all the available drawing buttons, but most of it is occupied by the drawing board. All you have to do is select the tool you want to use and unleash your creativity.

Among the available drawing instruments, you can find the 'Freedraw' tool, which you can use to draw on the board freely. You can also insert radial or continuous lines, rectangles or circles of various dimensions, as well as text boxes.

The brush color is customizable and so is the line thickness or the grid transparency. However, adjusting them is a bit annoying, as you have to press the '+' or '-' buttons to do so. Another drawback is that the eraser dimension cannot be adjusted.

The software comes with unlimited undo support, so if you did something wrong, you don't have to worry, as you can turn all the way back to a blank drawing surface. However, this might take a while: each time you press the 'Undo' button, the application allows you to view all your actions so far, just like in a video and eliminates the last one.

Once you finish your drawing, you can print it or save it to your PC for later use in DG2 (DigiGraph project) or BMP format.

Designed with simplicity in mind, DigiGraph is a handy tool especially for game developers who often need to use graph paper to design maps and sketches. Or you can use it to simply print empty graph paper using a high-quality printer and thus save some money.
