Hi,

 

what visual style have you made active for that viewport?

does that happen for other plotter-drivers too? What happens if you plot using "DWG to PDF.pc3"?

Does that happen only for that layout, only for that drawing or for all drawings (also new ones based on original AutoCAD templates)?

Hi

 

See attached visual style manager for drawing.

I have the same problem if I use other printer , same for dwg to PDF.pc3

 

If i open a new autocad template and paste drawing , i get the same problem. But it happens with onle few of my drawings not all of them.

Hi,

 

sorry, I liked to know what visual style you hae assigned to that viewport, the list of styles does not help in this case.

 

>> But it happens with onle few of my drawings

Can you upload one of them? As long as this issue is reproducable you can erase some of the geometry to make the drawing smaller.

If you paste viewports from problem drawing to the Layuot in new drawing and get the same problem, have you tried recreate viewports in problem drawing (erase existing and create new in place of old)? Or even recreate Layout?

I get it.

The problem is in Visual style assigned to viewport in Layout.
It is "Shades of Gray", if you change it to 2D wireframe - you will get right output.

 

When you assign to viewport Visual style other then 2D Wireframe, AutoCAD converts entire viewport to raster image with DPI set according to 3D viewport settings in Page setup, by default it is about 150 DPI (or even less), then you get low resolution image on output.
