Draftsight has stopped being able to print to our HP 42" plotter.

Question asked by Shaun Drage on Aug 7, 2014

This is my first post on this forum, I have used it in the past to find the answer to my questions/problems with Solidworks. I now have a problem with Draftsight which I just can't find the solution to. I think I'm in the right place, please forgive me if I'm wrong, and point me in the right direction.

I have been using Draftsight for a couple years now for me 2d needs, mainly for our extensive archive collection of DWG's. I now have an issue printing to our networked HP42" plotter. Draftsight used to work OK to our plotter, I don't know what has changed or when it may have happened, but recently, although the plotter is still showing as an available printer, if I select it, the print preview is not shown and nothing is printed. If I select any other printer on the network, I get the print preview as expected and the drawing is printed OK. I have uninstalled then re-installed Draftsight but still have the same issue. Solid Works 2014 will print to the plotter without any problem. This has been driving me mad for a month or so now and I would welcome any advice in solving it. Thank you all in advanced.
