Go to official pdfposter website here.
This tool is very simple and good. You can split a PDF document into several to create a poster. See the example bellow:
pdfposter -p 4x4a4 /tmp/drawing.pdf /tmp/out.pdf
input: 1 page, A0, pdf file:
output: 16 pages, A4, pdf file:
But there is a problem... printers usually have a printable area, so you need to add a margin to your document in order to don't lose anything when you print it. Here is how I did it for the example above.
First, use pdfposter to create a smaller version (160x247mm, that means 2.5mm of top, bottom, left and right margins).
pdfposter -m160x247mm -pA0 drawing.pdf out.pdf
After that, create a TeX document that will include this pdf, place each page inside a A4 page and include cropping marks. Here is the source code:
% Support for PDF inclusion
% Support for PDF scaling
% Globals: include all pages, don't auto scale
And... voilà! Here is the final pdf. And it page will be like this:
