I plot from paperspace to a defined VIEW and would like to avoid using the ‘Center the Plot ‘ X and Y offsets. Although successfully plotting, I want to nail down WHY I get a persistent offset value.
PROCEDURE (refer to the attached files)
1. Create a frame of a known size (odd size due to being based on the printer limitations --- I think) and use it to define a view named ‘B_LANDSCAPE’
2. PLOTOFFSET variable is set to “0”. Would like to keep this value.
3. Use only the one View named ‘B_LANDSCAPE’
4. Define the UCS origin at the bottom left (in Paperspace - B_SHEET tab).
The offset issue is only when I attempt to plot B size (11” X 17”) sheets on a Lanier Multi-function Device printer.
I have no problems (no offsets needed) w/ the HP T1100 plotter for our standard 24" x 36" Arch Landscape drawing sheet.
After multiple tests moving around the constant size polyline frame (to define the VIEW) location, I feel like I am chasing my tail; and still must use the ‘Center the Plot’ to keep from the sheet being cropped ……
How do I avoid this!
Plumbing the depths of my knowledge.....I have run into a clog.
