Smudged Solid Hatch Objects in PDF Autocad Mac LT 2012

Hi All-


I've been having a problem with my solid-hatched objects being smudged when saved to PDF. The paper sizes are large (Architechture 42x30). My ctb's and (I think) page set ups are all in line.


I guess my question is, is there something I'm missing in terms of selecting quality? Is this issue inside ACAD or is it a mac issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need these PDF's to be presentation quality as they will be presented to teams of contractors, owners, arch's, etc...


I never had this issue in parallels. 


Sorry if this is a rookie question, I scoured this forum and couldn't really find any definitive information. I really appreciate everyones help. Attached is a screen shot of what the PDF looks like-

Hi Nick,


Could you tell: what size of this hatch in paper space units? (your sheet is 42' long and the size of hatch is - ?)


How did you made this PDF? Via export o PDF or via Batch publish?

What printer do you use?


EDIT: Could you post your DWG file here for investigation?
