Plotting in BricsCAD
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:38:38 AM »
I get the following to work in AutoCAD but not In BriscCAD...any ideals?

(command ".-plot" "Y" (getvar "ctab") "DWG To PDF.pc3" "Arch full bleed D (36.00 x 24.00 Inches)" "Inches"
    "Landscape" "N" "layout" "Fit" "" "Y" "PM (FULL SIZE).CTB" "Y" "Y" "N" "N" (getvar "ctab") "N" "Y")
Why is there never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over?

I'm not on the latest version, but I believe the PDF pc3 file for BricsCAD is called "Print As PDF.pc3" and there may be other differences. In earlier versions I see the ARCH D size labeled "ARCH D (36.00 x 24.00 Inches)" so you might want to go through the printer/plotter settings to verify.

Thanks, but I had already tried those options...no luck.

Here is the code:

Code: [Select]
(defun PM:PDF  (LONAME)
  (setvar "ctab" LONAME)
  (if (= (getvar "cvport") 2)(command "pspace"))
  (cond
    ((= "BRICSCAD" (strcase (getvar 'product)))
     (command ".-plot" "Y" LONAME "DWG To PDF.pc3" "Arch D" "I" "L" "N" "L" "F" "" "Y" "PM (FULL SIZE).CTB" "Y" "Y" "N" "N" (strcat (getvar "dwgprefix")(getvar "ctab")) "N" "Y"))
    ((/= "BRICSCAD" (strcase (getvar 'product)))
     (command ".-plot" "Y" LONAME "DWG To PDF.pc3" "Arch full bleed D (36.00 x 24.00 Inches)" "I" "L" "N" "L" "F" "" "Y" "PM (FULL SIZE).CTB" "Y" "Y" "N" "N" LONAME "N" "Y"))) 
  (princ))
