Input data:
plotter HP Designjet 430
Drawing have texts and lines with weight .25mm
And these element looks 1.5 times thinner when plotted from ZWCAD(2009i) than they plotted from Autocad (2006).
When I set line weight in ZWCAD to 0.3mm drawings looks same.
I plot without any scale and style.

of couse, I did!
I also checked plotting to HP DesignJet 500PS
Diferrense in thicknesses isn't so huge (I think because of smaller pixel size in plotter) but I can see it.vlad_simple2009-09-28 15:42:02

Hi Vlad,

where did you set the lineweight ? In the plot style table or did you set something about the layer management ?

Regards,
Lars

I set lineweight in layer properties.
But I think it doesn't matter what way I do this.
Because the SAME drawing looks different on SAME plotter when plotted from ZWCAD and AutoCAD

Yes, there are differences with the usage of the plot style tables in the current version. You will have to set up a new table in ZWCAD.

It's sad to hear. Maybe developers can fix this.
