    Do you have ‘DWG to PDF’ plotter? If not you should be able to download from Autodesk website.

    or try Primo PDF, not sure about the apple variety?

    Primo only prints upto A3? Mine does anyway.

    Don’t PDFs scale for the printer you’re using? Especially from vector graphics.
    Send them the PDF and they can print from that.

    Sorted. Simpler than that. Did Print – Paper Size – Manage Custom Sizes then created an A1 sheet size for my A4 printer.

    I have just amended some clients drawings and I need to print them out as A1 pdf’s. My printer is only A4.
    AutoCAD Mac doesn’t have a plotter manager.
    Is there a way of creating a ‘virtual’ printer to produce larger format pdf’s of drawings?
    I tried downloading HP drivers but they won’t install unless you have the actual printer attached.

    Thanks

    If you are printing to PDF does it even matter what physical printer you have connected?

    As above. Turns out it doesn’t but you still have to choose a printer then a paper size.
