For full disclosure, plotting is not one of my strongest areas, but i believe you need to find the plotter that has a .pc3 behind it to access any custom changes8-5-2013 10-00-14 AM.png

Dave is on the right track here, you'll also need to create and map a plotter model parameter pmp file.

This may help tie it all together. If not do a search for PMP files and pc3 files and there are many helpful sites.
