View Full Version : plotting lineweights and linetypes
28th Jan 2004, 04:50 pm
I am working with one layer, but on my drawing I have several different linetypes and lineweights. When I plot my drawing they do not show up! I have read and read manuals and do not know what I am doing wrong. Can anyone please help,

Are they on a layer that is set up not to print? Or is the layer set to "freeze in current viewport"?

For linetype: Open the Linetype manager dialog box (command LINETYPE). Press Show details if closed. Global scale factor usually equal scale of your dwg. Take out a flag in box "Use paper space unit for scaling"
As for lineweight... Depend on plotstyle. May be there are fixed lineweights. Check plotstyle> - lwt for each color. If "use object lineweight", should work

I reckon you could use the LTSCALE vraiable.When you alter this it chnages the scal;e for all linetypes in your drawing.You may have to regen to see the effects.Also once youve got the linetype to display how you would like it go to the plot preview and zoom in then youll see how they will be plotted.Don't bother changing independant linetypes via the properties box this can really confuse the drawing for others after.

Global scale factor is the same as LTSCALE variable

Please check the Plot style it may happened that u must e giving a different plot style to print. that may also may not print u'r lineweight
and about line type check u'r ltscale according to the drawing scale that u'r using while printing.
