When trying to use the PDF Writer driver by Autodesk, I find that the final
plot has a number of MISSING lines in the final plot.
These are when I try to plot an ortho view and there are some flat surfaces
being seen edge-on. Some of them appear fine. Some have just pieces of the
lines with large gaps missing.
I'm not sure what setting might help this.
Any ideas? Is this a problem with Acad? Or is it a problem specific to
this driver? I could use a different printer but this would be much more
At the very least, is this known and is there a workaround?
Using Acad 2000
I have NO experience with 3D. I recently started learning ACAD on
2004 & 2008. (Last class was on orthographic projections of the 6
sides of an object and their proper alignment using non printing
construction lines on a special construction layer. We mainly worked
with the front, right and top sides.) However, I know that with
layers you can turn any layer on or off. You can also select
whether to plot it or not. Have you checked the settings for all
the layers? Are the missing lines mistakenly placed on an invisible
layer or one with plotting turned off?
If this seems simplistic just remember this is a newbie asking? ;-)
I have this problem sometimes in 2008. Usually, adjusting the scale or
the viewing angle a bit has fixed things, but I couldn't tell you why.
This seems to help, too: in the printer Properties dialog, go to Custom
Properties > Device and Document Settings > Default Settings and change
'Standard' to 'High-Quality' or 'Press Quality.'
