Ghosting - when print to PDF

257 Views, 4 Replies

Has anyone else seen ghosting when printing a pdf?

I had a problem earlier with empty fonts for silkscreens on my drawing. The silkscreen was changed to a part where the text was extruded .005" and then the whole part constrained on top of the panel in position.

The drawing view is a single view of the silkscreen part and shown as shaded to fill the font.

Looks great on the drawing.

When i print to PDF the three pages of silkscreen parts (only) show up with offset ghosting. This file saves and prints with the ghost.

 

Any ideas??

Have you tried saving to pdf?

Are your Adobe drivers up to date along with your print drivers?

 

Can you post an image of what you are seeing?

As posted prior, use the Export or when printing to PDF or increase the quality setting within the PDF printer to "High" from the "Standard" setting.

 

The "Export"to PDF is better as you will have layers that can be turned on and off within the PDF.

i tried exporting to PDF. i tried increasing the dpi. i exported to autocad in hopes of then exporting to pdf.

Nothing is working for me.

The image is fine in Inventor, but, not in Autocad or Pdf.

The image is of a "filled" extrusion, ie. the feature is black. the text is 1/16th high.

Inventor defaults to a non-filled solid which is fine by me, but, as this is suppose to be a silkscreen detail i need to have the fonts filled.

In the attachement you can see what i am up against.

Is it only doing it with the one file?

Have you tried doing this on a different machine?
