AutoCad 2000, old plotter....

AutoCad 2000, old plotter....

AutoCad 2000, old plotter....

Hi, Hopefully someone here has experienced what I'm experienceing.

I've upgraded from Cadkey 6 to AutoCad 2000, but I still have my old plotter (Hewlett Packard HP-GL/2 Languge DraftMaster SX Plus).

I've been trying for several days, and have yet to get a successful plot. I'm sure that it is only a matter of using the proper parameters, but I haven't selected the correct set of parameters yet.

Has someone got the proper parameters for my application?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Do you have the windows driver for the plotter? Install the plotter with add printer in settings. If Windows succeeds sending commands, it will work in Autocad

go to www.winline.com and buy there software
I have  the same plotter and the soft ware works perfectly
it will alow you to print any widow app though the plotter, great for meetings
when you bring in a 24" wide letter they can see in the back.
There tech service is outstanding, ## you will need to buy the serial cable from them
to make it work right
