This document provides you with a quick overview of how to plot to DotCIO's plotters using the Windows and UNIX versions of Pro/Engineer.
When creating a drawing, you can pick one of the standard sizes:
|Paper Size||Dimensions (Inches)||Dimensions (Millimeters)|
If you want a size other than those listed, choose “variable”, and fill in your values for the dimensions.
Printing the Drawing:
Create your drawing using Pro/Engineer and then, when you are ready to print, select Print... from the File menu. In the Print window, select “Generic Color Postscript” as the Destination and then click Configure.... From the drop down choices for Size, select the same height and width you chose when you created the drawing. Select the Printer tab, and under Rotation (at the bottom), select “Spin 90”.
Finally, in the box for Plotter Command, type the command to send to the plotter. What you type depends on the platform you are using and the plotter you are selecting. For example, to send to VCP7100, you would type the following:
|On Windows:||print /d:\\printers.win.rpi.edu\vcp7100|
|On UNIX:||lpr -Pvcp7100|
On Windows, don't forget to connect to sambasrv (using the RCS Files and Printer Sharing icon) before printing.
