Line weight not shown when drafting sheet is printed out

Hey all,

 

When I am drafting in NX10 and taking a print of the sheet, I am unable to see the line weights I used on the drafting sheet in NX on the hardcopy.

Please could anyone help me know what needs to be fixed?

Thank you

Naga

Are you using

- File -> Print?

or

- File -> Plot?

 

2 different technologies, with (possibly) different solutions

In NX8.5, there is also File/Export/PDF, then print...

Re: Line weight not shown when drafting sheet is printed out

I am using File --> Print

Re: Line weight not shown when drafting sheet is printed out

I tried exporting to  PDF and printing too. 

Even then the components with a line weight of 0.18 are also shown as 0.13 in the hardcopy.

Take a look at customer defaults

Gateway -> "Printing (Windows only)" -> "General" tab

Note the list of "width scale factor"s - I'm guessing this has something to do with your issue.

I have tried that too.

I have set it the same way it was on my NX8.5. 

The sheets print with widths when I use NX8.5 but not NX10. 


Re: Line weight not shown when drafting sheet is printed out

Use - File -> Plot
and there change in Manual settings of width: Normal = 0.6mm? thin = 0,18мм and thick = 0.8mm

I tried to do that now.

The drawing sheet in NX gets updated with the changes I do, but not the hardcopy. Hardcopy constantly gives only 0.13 weight lines irrespective of the settings.
