Hi,

I use Teamcenter handler RDV-generate-ugcgm-drawing for printing PDF within process.

How can I control the widths of the lines of drawing?

Line widths appear thinner when printing in NX 11 because the print width scale factors changed in NX 10 and later.
The print width scale factors for NX8.5 thru NX9.0 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
In NX10.0 and later versions, the print width scale factors are: 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3

Here's how to change the Customer Defaults for the print width scale factors:
1. Select 'File-->Utilities-->Customer Defaults '.
2. Expand 'Gateway', and highlight 'Printing (Windows Only)'.
3. Under the 'General' tab, assign Width 1 Scale Factor through Width 9 Scale Factor the values of: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
4. OK the Customer Defaults dialog and restart NX for the settings to take effect.

After NX has been restarted, the dialog Print memory should be reset. This can be done in the Print dialog box (circular arrow next to the 'X' in the top right hand corner of the dialog). Or go to 'File-->Preferences-->User Interface' and select 'Option'. Then select the 'Reset Dialog Memory' icon in the Dialog Boxes group.
