I am developing an application in C# to automate the release of parts and assemblies at my company, and part of that process is printing the drawing. I wrote the following print function:

void print(SldWorks.ModelDoc2 doc)
            ModelDocExtension swModExt = default(ModelDocExtension);
            PageSetup pset;

            pset = (PageSetup)doc.PageSetup;
            pset.Orientation = 2; //1=portrait, 2=landscape
            pset.ScaleToFit = true;
            pset.PrinterPaperSize = 4; //1=8.5x11, 4=11x17
            swModExt = (ModelDocExtension)doc.Extension;

            swModExt.PrintOut3(null, 1, false, "", "", true);
            TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text + "\r\n\t" + "Printed " + doc.GetPathName();
            using (StreamWriter w = File.AppendText("T:\\USERS\\JUNK\\For Rohan\\log\\swlog.txt"))
                log("Printed " + doc.GetPathName(), w);

The issue is the paper size is not always 11x17 as I would expect, but rather is set to the previous paper size printed from Solidworks. I would like the drawing to always be printed in 11x17.


Any help would be much appreciated!
