Chapter 20. Productive Plotting > Configuring a Plotter

Configuring a Plotter

The first step in plotting drawings from AutoCAD is configuring the plot devices intended for plotting. By configuring the printers and plotters to which AutoCAD will plot, you can predefine certain output properties, and later refine them with plot styles and page setups.

AutoCAD supports many printers and plotters, and ships with a variety of drivers. The drivers allow AutoCAD to communicate with the printers and plotters, including those that support raster and PostScript file formats. The device drivers support many plotting devices, including Hewlett-Packard, Xerox, and Océ plotters. Additionally, AutoCAD plots to Windows system printers, which is any device that is listed in the Windows Printer Folder, including Adobe Acrobat PDFWriter, which allows you to create PDF files.
