Chapter 20. Productive Plotting > Defining Plot Styles

Defining Plot Styles

AutoCAD 2000 introduces a new feature called plot styles, which allow you control how objects in drawings appear when plotted. Through a plot style, you can tell AutoCAD to override and plot certain objects with a wide line, a different color, or even a different linetype than what is assigned to the object in the drawing. With plot styles, you can easily vary the way objects look when plotted, no matter how they look in the drawing.

Plot styles allow you to control several object properties when you plot a drawing. You can control the object’s color, linetype, and lineweight. You can also control values for dithering, gray scale, and screening. You can set pen assignments and define object fill styles. You can also control how line endpoints appear, as well as how they appear at joint points. With plot styles, you can create from a single drawing many plots that appear different, without actually modifying any objects in the drawing.
