Specify Shaded Plotting Settings

If you are plotting a drawing that contains 3D solids that are shaded, you can control how the drawing is plotted.

Specifically, you can choose from the following options:

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.
