Need to plot ANSI J Size drawing

669 Views, 2 Replies

AutoCAD 2002 running Windows 2000 Professional.
I am attempting to plot an ANSI J Size drawing to a HP350C Plotter. The predefined paper sizes in the Plot command only allow up to an ANSI E Size, which is only 44-inches long. I need my plot to be 55-inches long for a 1:1 plot. The Custom Size selection does not allow any manipulation of the paper size. Is there any way to plot without it being to a defined paper size? I appreciate any thoughts, advice or solutions given. Thanks! and regards, Gary.

What plotter driver are you using? Custom size does not let you
enter 55" for the paper width? IS this setting being done in the
Windows Driver, or the shared PC3 file?

Plotter. The predefined paper sizes in the Plot command only
allow up to an ANSI E Size, which is only 44-inches long. I need

Thanks for your response Dean. I have been attempting the plot using the shared PC3 file; this would be the preferred method. Of course I haven't had any luck with the Windows Driver either, AutoCAD seems to override any settings I change. I appreciate any further correspondence, thanks again.
