Re: PLT of AutoCAD

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you want to do the procedure below to a network printer/plotter then

In Win95/98 you should be able to redirect lpt1 to a network printer/plotter in the Printer Properties page using a Capture Printer Port option in the Details tab.

In WinNT/2000 you can use a Net Use command in the autoexec.nt file to do the same thing.

At 03:16  12/03/01 -0800, you wrote:
From a dos prompt you can type "copy  *.plt  >lpt1", to send the file
directly to the parrallel port.  Only do this from the computer that is
directly attached to the plotter via LPT1.  The *.plt would have had to be
created for your plotter specifically.
