Hi,

Our company has a tried and tested HP Designjet 500 that served us well until we switched to Windows 10.

Now there is an issue to print from AutoCad as a number of users have found.

So ............we now run AutoCad LT 2020 ( also this will be upgraded free to LT 2021 ) and operate over a company network using HP i5 Probooks.

We need to 42 inch roll printer to print AutoCad drawings and Autocad generated p./d.f's. Additionally of course we will need to print standard microsoft applications to a 42 inch roll plotter. The old plotter also used to be configuarable to choose an oversize paper from the roll and we used to plot on a 42 inch roll up to 1400mm long.

 

We have been recommended to purchase a Designjet T1700.

Any comments greatly appreciated to ensure we purchase a plotter that will actually work properly...!!!.

 

Many thanks,

Paul.

Hello,

 

The T1700 is compatible with AutoCAD print engine, we suggest to pick the postscript version to get the Adobe Engine.
