Plot Your Drawing

You can plot your drawing as it is viewed in model space, or you can plot one of your prepared paper space layouts. Plotting from model space is often preferable when you want to view or verify your drawing prior to creating a paper space layout. Once your model is ready, you can prepare and plot a paper space layout.

NoteThe BACKGROUNDPLOT system variable must be set to 0 before a script can plot multiple jobs.

Plotting involves working with two ActiveX Automation objects: the Layout object and the Plot object. The Layout object contains the plot settings for a given layout. The Plot object contains the methods and properties that initiate and monitor a plotting sequence.
