I'm having an issue when printing a drawing. Strange lines show up that are not seen in the drawing on the screen. Any ideas how to fix this? See the attached image.
I have no idea what could cause that. Have you tried saving the drawing as a pdf? If they don't show up in the pdf then print that.
Have you tried "Hide all types"?
Yes. The issue was just with these two views. Played around with several things and it turns out that these two views (which are cropped views) didn't like the cross hatch from the original section. That is the section lines were not getting cropped out. Turned them off and the issue went away. I use cropped views all the time and have never had this issue. Go figure...
I have seen this a couple times myself. Is your VC Driver up to date? If not, try updating it, then reboot.
Agreed. I have seen this and similar with unsupported or uncertified drivers.
Furthermore, I echo Glenn's suggestion to Save_As PDF and print that, instead of printing from SWx.
That actually sounds like a way better option. It's actually a lot faster that waiting for SW to process and send to the printer. Appreciate the help!
If newly adapting to Saving drawings As PDF, I also suggest exploring the persistent Options available for exporting PDFs by clicking the [Options] button which appears below file name and file type fields, after selecting file type. Choices made, as persistent, will be remembered for next use. I interact with this commonly because we produce B/W drawings to clients and color drawings to our shop. This is the first option checkbox in Options.
One strength, or weakness depending on printer capabilities, is that Saving As PDF will generate a PDF with page size as specified in page format. Then, compounding ease or difficulty, your PDF reader can usually be set with a persistent option in its print settings to select page size from file page size.
Thanks Tom. I really appreciate your help on this! I will definitely take your advice.
Yes. All up to date.
