Why doesn't my printer like Impression

I am new to Impression but 15 years with AutoCAD.

Spent 2 days creating my first masterpiece (.irf file = 1.9MB)

When I come to print to my HP DesignJet 500 Plus after 10 minutes I get 'Out of Memory-Data was lost'.
The real problem is that I have the maximum 160MB Ram in this printer. Yes 160MB Ram!!

Can anyone tell me what is happening before I call the Samaritans!

Many thanks.

You might want to check out your output resolution, when printing directly, lowering it is better. I've had similar issues with our designjet and found that outputing to jpegs or pdf's and printing from there is a much more reliable route to go.
