Plotter media sizes We have about 15 plotters at work. I can get a list of all of the printers but how do I get a list of media sizes for each of these printers? An example of the output I'm seeking: (list "\"Xerox Phaser1\"" "Letter (8.5 x 11\")" "Tabloid (11 x 17\")") How I get the list of plotters: (defun getprinters ( / temp printers ) ; returns a list of all of the plotters (setq temp (vlax-safearray->list (vlax-variant-value (vla-getplotdevicenames (vla-item (vla-get-layouts (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object) ) ) "Model" ) ) ) ) ) (setq printers (list )) (foreach printer temp (if (/= printer "None") (setq printers (append printers (list printer) ) ) ) ) )
Hi, Guys i have 4 views in a drawing, (view the screen shot below) i have to plot these 4 views into a pdf document, (each view into a seperate page in the PDF ) now imagine me doing this for 40+ drawings files, in which each of the drawing file also has 4 or more views (this process is really frusturating ) I know about the layout setting method,(Setting up layouts for 40x4views is hard ) I tried a work around of plotting the full view of the 4 documents into A0 PDF, and then cropping and splitting the PDF pages, (This is also hard ) any ideas, methods or software recommendations are appreciated,
