The recent update to the web version of AutoCAD WS introduced an important innovation. The new Plot button enables you to select several criteria including the Style, Layout and Scale of your design before plotting with the following form:
The plot style will usually default to Grayscale, but you can select an alternative CTB or STB from the drop down list provided you have uploaded it to AutoCAD WS. If your DWG identifies a stylesheet that has not been uploaded, you will be able to upload it before continuing with your plot.
The default is PDF, but you can also select DWF at this point. Please note that both PDF and DWF have been added to the dropdown behind the Download button where they will be downloaded with all attributes set to default.
Layout & Area
For the first time AutoCAD WS allows you to select a layout other than the one you are currently viewing.
The default selection is standard A1, but the drop down list contains a wide variety of paper sizes for you to choose from.
You may choose to plot your design either as Extents or just the part of the design currently in the display.
You can toggle between Portrait and Landscape.
The Fit to Paper checkbox is checked by default, but you can uncheck it and select a new scale from the dropdown.
Once you click the OK button your design will be plotted and you will receive the following confirmation message:
