Description

Description

Plotting can be one of the more confusing aspects of using AutoCAD software and AutoCAD verticals. When the time comes to plot, all you want is your file on paper, but the options seem overwhelming. PC3, PMP, STB, CTB...so many files. What should you use and when? Then there are file types. Should you plot to PDF or DWF™? What is the difference? When should you use each one? Which drivers should you use for each file type? What are the differences between plotting from AutoCAD on a PC and plotting from AutoCAD on a Mac®? Why are your margins so big? Have you ever felt lost while trying to plot? Ever wondered what all those extra options are that you never use? Then this class is for you. Come and see just how easy plotting can be.
