If you are plotting a drawing that contains 3D
solids that are shaded, you can control how the drawing is
you can choose from the following options:
As Displayed. Plots the design as it is
displayed; all the shading is preserved.
Wireframe. Displays lines and curves to
represent object boundaries.
Hidden. Suppresses the plotting of
objects that are located behind other objects.
Visual Styles. Plots the design as it
appears in the visual style you select.
Rendered. Renders objects before they
are plotted, based on Render options you set before you plot or
based on the render preset you select.
You can select
an option for your drawing either from model space or from a
layout. From model space, the options are available in the
Properties palette and the Plot dialog box. From a layout, after
you select a viewport, the options are available from the shortcut
menu and from the Properties palette.
Either way, you
can save your settings with the drawing.
NoteIf you select
the Rendered option, specify Render settings before plotting. If
the Rendered option is used for a highly complex set of objects,
the hardcopy output might contain only the viewport border.
