You can choose among several options for plotting shaded and rendered viewports. You can plot a viewport as it is displayed, in wireframe, with hidden lines removed, or as rendered.
You can specify how each viewport should be plotted, and save the plot settings with a drawing. You also can choose from a wide variety of resolutions, up to the resolution of your plotter, and save the resolution settings with a drawing.
The options for shaded viewport plotting give you a large degree of flexibility in conveying your three-dimensional designs to others. You can convey your design intent by choosing how viewports are plotted and by specifying resolution levels.
If you are plotting a drawing that contains 3D solids that are shaded, you can control how the drawing is plotted.
You can set the resolution of shaded plots for either greater speed or higher fidelity.
