my question will be based on this premis :
say you buy plans at 1/8 to foot scale and you want 1/4 inch/foot- so you go to printer and double the plans. problem is you double space between plans but you don't have double frames. so can CAD be programed to draw frames to fill in spaces in given frames ?

Hi clipper randy,

With most cad programs you can import a digitized file into a drawing and trace a single frame, move it next to the original frame creating a double frame. You would need to do this for each frame.

Bob Hunt at Lauck Street Shipyard has a practicum for using CAD to loft frames...he is also a CAD expert having drawn frames in CAD for kits...the practicum may help and an email might answer your questions.
