RE: Plotter Recommendation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Do you have a local blueprinters that can handle electronic plotting for you
(i.e. send them .plt or .pdf files?).

The one I use, charges 75 cents a square foot for the first batch and then
normal rates for the remaining sets. They charge I think twice that for
pdf's for some reason. The cost of the prints is billed to the client with a
slight markup for the service.

I use an 11x17 laser printer to make sets for back checking, site visits,
(fits in the file with the calcs) and after a couple of months, it's a
breeze. I wasn't sure if this is what you are already doing or you simply
have to buy a plotter because there are no local outfits that can print
large scale plots at a reasonable price (I think even Kinko's can do it, but
not sure how expensive or fast (probably not fast) they are).

		I am a 1-man shop and up to now all I have needed is an
11x17 laster print for my drawings.  However, for some upcoming work, I will
need to provide 24x36 drawings.  

		I'm considering the HP 110plus, mainly because of the price.
I don't intend to use it a lot and I don't need a lot of fancy features.
I'd appreciate feedback (on the list or privately if you prefer) about this
plotter or others that you may recommend.
