line weight difference between screen and print

Hello everybody

I use Auto sketch relase 7 and the HP Laser Jet 2100.
On the screen and on the preview the line weight seems to be correct, but if I print it, the line weight is much lighter.

Is there anybody who has got the same problem? Thank you for your help!

Hello

 

Once sent to the printer the printers resolution
will change what isseenon the screen.  I prefer resolutions below 600 and
possible 300 if the printer will go that low these days.  Also the high
resolutions also produce prints that don't photo copy too well so once again
reduce the resolution or quality.

This is a known issue from way back. When the program was Drafix and had Macros, I had a macro that would thicken everything up. I currently convert my drawing to a DWG and print from AutoCAD LT to get acceptable looking output.

The only other suggestion is to use polylines and make them thicker so your plots look better.

Using 300 dpi never gave me acceptable drawings.
