Q - question

Print all Inventor drawing sheets in one go, tiling large formats.

A - answer If you need to print or plot multiple (or all) IDW/DWG drawing sheets to your printer or plotter in one go, use the option "Print range" in the "Print drawing" dialog (Ctrl+P).

And if you want to print a larger format (at a given scale) than the largest format available for your printer, you can enable automatic tiling to smaller formats (tiles). Check the option "Tiling enabled" and Inventor splits the drawing (e.g. E/A1 size) to multiple output print pages/sheets (e.g. B/A3 size). Inventor prints registration marks (crosses) on page corners for alignment of printed pages. Page identifiers contain the drawing and sheetname, and a table cell number to help keep pages in order and to simplify glueing them together:
