I created a 3D object and it looks OK in the model space and layout(Gouraud Shaded). But when I view the plot preview it looks like 2D wireframe and it also plots so. Could anybody helps me please!

Hi

You must be using AutoCAD 2004 or above to Plot 3D Shaded Views directly to an output device. Below snippet is from an AutoCAD 2004 review -

Shaded viewports can now be plotted directly.

For AutoCAD 2002 or below check out the following Technical Document on the Autodesk web site under the Knowledge Base section -

ID: TS64610 - Plotting both rendered and wireframe views of solid objects on the same sheet (http://usa.autodesk.com/getdoc/id=TS64610)

Have a good one, Mike
