Printing Problems

245 Views, 3 Replies

I am having problems printing from AC 2013. In one drawing I can print 42" x 380" with no problem but then I open a new drawing and try printing 42" x 315" AC doesn't send it to the printer. In the 42" x 315" drawing if I set my paper lower than 300" it prints fine. Any leads on how I can fix this?

Hi,

 

sounds like a memory issue, so if the second plot uses more data (especially image-data) than anything happens that may need more memory (more than available).

Try to plot to DWF, it that works then open the DWF with DesignReview and print it to the plotter then.

If .DWF fails, try to virtually print to a PDF file, then send it to the plotter from Adobe Reader.

Hi,

 

and if you need to try PDF then don't use Adobe therefor, because Adobe-Printer and the format 315" fails before it starts (IMHO) :smileywink:
