Frequent tipster Danny Korem shares some printing tips to use in AutoCAD.
"Have you experienced a scenario like this? The file seems normal and clean, yet it won't plot. You tried to create a PLT file but it’s blank — just like the white paper wasted in the plotter. The workaround would be to replace the existing layout(s) with new one(s). If page setups are used, you can import them from a file (probably a template file). Otherwise, you can create a new page setup, then force the layout to use it as current. The best practice is to import the layout from another file by way of Design Center."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Reviewer Brian Benton: Printing a drawing can be very frustrating at times. It always amazes me that something so important can also be so difficult. Use page setups; they will help you (and your coworkers) tremendously. Once established, they can be used in the file, in Publisher, or in a sheet set, and can also be imported into other files.
