Plotting PDF-Required Workflow
This workflow will ensure for worry free, trouble free, stress free plotting. The Advanced Technology staff have worked hard to put together a fool proof method to ensure accurate high quality fast plotting.
Currently, ARCH series papers will always rotate to come out with the longest dimension along the roll length on the draft plotter. While we work on a solution to this, if you want to print an ARCH-D (36”x24”) or ARCH-C (24”x18”) in a landscape orientation, you must crop your page, even a small amount, so that it’s size doesn’t exactly match an ARCH series paper. A 36”x24” sheet should only cost $4.44. If the price shows in the release station as $6.66, follow these instructions to correct this issue:
In Acrobat, press the pink Edit Pages button in the right hand toolbar, then click on the Crop Page button that will appear on the toolbar above your page. Crop the left or right side of your page by at least 0.1” and the page will print correctly. Since the printer’s left/right margins are roughly 0.14”, there will be no visible difference in the result.
