Question about HP DesignJet 1050c plus InkJet Printer

Incomplete Plot of PDF file

I continue to experience a problem with an incomplete plot when attempting to plot a pdf file of a mechanical drawing on an Hp DesignJet 1050C Plus plotter. It has been suggested that I get the drawing in another format, but this is not possible. The actual document size is 36.0" X 167.9". I am using 36" width roll-fed paper. The plotter stops the image at about 109-1/4" in length, begins to continuously run white paper out to the end of the paper size I specified, 170", while displaying the message "Receiving, Low Memory", and then cuts the paper at 170". I have resaved the file on my local "C" drive and have set the driver to use memory in the computer (I have 2 MB in my machine, the plotter has 128MB in one slot, 64 MB in the other) which slows the plotting, but still does not let it complete the full image. I would appreciate any help offered, as I have tried everything I know.

Thank you,
John
Lancaster, PA

This is a common problem on the 500 range, not so common on the 1050. A quick way around the problem (using the parallel port only) is to load the HP Designjet 750c drivers. Send the drawing to the 750 using memory in computer option and it WILL print.

SOURCE: Incomplete plot from .pdf file - Hp DesignJet 1050C Plus

Was the plot originally done on a size D or E plotter.. A .pdf is generally not a good way to send a plot that has to be done to scale.. Can they re-send the plot in a hpgl format, or a format that you can use in another program, liks ACAD, and then print it through that program? This would provide you with some control, that a pdf document will not allow.

This is just a stab in the dark for me, but I am familiar with plotters in general, just not the many formats to print from..

Friends,

You doesn't say what application and OS versions you have, or if the printer is shared from a server or connected locally to a workstation. This is signifcant to solve the problem. Please clarify.

To make this work properly, all machines should have the HPGL driver and all drivers should have both the "Autorotate" "Inked Area" boxes ticked - both under General > Printing Preferences > Advanced AND under Advanced > Printing Defaults > Advanced.

Then you should create a paper size that is as wide as the media is wide, and longer than the longest/widest paper size you're ever going to print (6-10 feet long is OK!) - BOTH under Printing Preferences AND under Printing Defaults. This will ensure that every "odd" paper size (within media width limits) is printed without problems.

If the printer is installed on a server and shared, these settings should be done on the server - and the driver should be reinstalled on the workstations. If not, these chanvges should be done on each workstation that has access to the printer over the network.

When using older versions of AutoCAD you might have to reinstall the printer there as well for the changes to take effect.

Note: This solution has worked successfully over several years while working at HP support. The suggestion about the looong paper size may sound strange but it works!

SOURCE: I have plotter HP designjet

You need to set up your pen assignments in Autocad, have you done this? ie, Pen1 is 0,25 black, pen2 is 0,35 blue etc,etc. If this is not done you will have problems with colours and line thickness's.

Ti 84 plus silver edition will not fit a linear model to plotted points. when I use the function vars>stat>EQ>RegEQ it transmits incomplete data in to Y=.


Your data must be in two lists L1 (for x-values), and L2 (for y-values). This is the default setting. Open the STAT utility, go to the regression models. Select your model then press ENTER. The command echoes on the main screen. For example let the regression be something called LinReg.
On the main screen you see LinReg
Complete the command line as follows
LinReg L1, L2, Y1, ENTER
You see the statistics including the regression equation.
If you go to Y= Editor you will see that Y1 contains the regression equation.
If you have already drawn the scatter plot for your data, pressing GRAPH will superpose the scatter plot and the regression curve., and you will be able to judge the goodness of the fit.

My TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphing Calculator continues to read "ERR: INVALID DIM" whenever I attempt to graph equations.


You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

Whenever i try the graph on my TI-83 Plus the ERR:INVALID DIM 1:QUIT comes up and ive checked the STAT PLOT and i have Plot 1 set as ON.


You have to turn all statistical plots OFF before you draw function graphs. Press [2nd][Y=] to open the statistical plot configuration screen. Press [4:PlotsOFF] and then [ENTER]. When calculator answers DONE you are ready to draw function plots.
