Q - question

Extra-long plots on HP Designjet T1200.

A - answer When you plot your AutoCAD drawings on HP Designjet workgroup plotters with roll media, you can usually use printouts up to formats 91 meters long (91.000 mm).

This option can be found in the "Paper options" field on the "Paper" tab in the Windows driver. Choose the button "Custom" and set the required length and width of your new format:

Oversize format on T1200

The plot can be then performed either directly for this format, or for a smaller format with the help of the scaling option in the driver - see the Scaling option on the Feature tab.
