Our HP1050c has finally gone out of calibration. We use a lot of full size plots for our architectural millowrk shop to build on top of. Dealer has recommendded the Canon ipf750. Anyone have experience with this plotter? Other model suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

We plot on 36" wide paper. This will only be used for full size plots. Ouput varies but maybe we go through 1 300' roll per month but can be 1 roll in a week during very busy times. The crucial thing for us is accuracy. +/- 1/16" over 20'.
thanks for your reply
I have somespare ime and I am crusing around the forums. Normally I am on the AC Electrical.
My answer is a bit late but it may help someone in the future.
It is a while since I fixed the HP1050. Majic machine. Your problem can be fixed if HP is still supporting them.
Dealers that have all brands on the shelf will push the brand they are getting the best discount that month.
Buy 10 get one free. I could not compete with the big boys. Many were selling below my buy price. That is why I am now a CAD person.

Wow. Were you getting that by accident with the 1050C ?
That is ±0.025% accuracy.
Don't most printers claim accuracy to ±0.1% ?
We like accurate prints, but 0.05" over 36" is OK here.
When we do full size plots to use as templates on the shop floor, we do need the accuracy.
For that, yes I could see it. !
We draw virtually nothing larger than 1"=10', and expect contractors to read the printed dimensions, not scale off the paper. :-)
