View Full Version : Autocad Plotter

04-16-2009, 02:30 AM
As a surveyor, I get Autocad files from architects set up to use their own plotter. I have a couple of choices; Print out to A3 or to our own plotter. Can some kind person give me some basic code that will:

Change to a hard coded plotter name eg \\Server\A3Colour (file://\\Server\A3Colour)
Change from defined scale to "Print to Fit"
Change from Landscape to Portrait

I can then add a couple of buttons to let me print more easily

MD in this zip file is a routine I wrote to batch plot a lot of drawings at a time. It is configured when you run plotconfig. then enter plotme. THe form that show up will let you select an installed plotter on your system select the paper size for that plotter. It is already setup to plot in the center, extents and to fit. It only plots the model space though. The only issue may be the linesettings. If you need any help let me know.
