Every time i give a plot, even if very small, it takes almost 1 minute to complete the job. & i cant give next plot till previous is finished. Can this be avoided?

Hi,

 

you may use the _PUBLISH command, than you can send a lot of drawings/layouts to the plotter with one step.

If the transfer of the data needs that much time I would look to the network-connections (and/or usb-connection) and also to the printer-driver ... what uis happening there?

Another test to isolate the problem: how long needs word to plot one page?
