Autocad 2012 LT - Plot length issue

196 Views, 1 Replies

Hello, I am having an issue with autocad 2012 LT. When my users try and plot a length greater than 250 inches it will plot almost half of the drawing then it would act like it is finished, go into the drying mode and cut the paper. It will do everything under 250 fine.


Computers being used are Windows 7 64bit machines and plotter is a HP Designjet z6100.


I have tried different drivers, different settings within autocad. I am just not sure if it is a limitation of LT or if I am missing something since I am not a autocad expert.

How is your device driver set up to handle long plots?
What driver are you using?
Can you plot long sheets from other programs?
Are you using a generic or custom PC3 file in AutoCAD specifically set up for the long plot?
Your post is light on specifics.
