Let’s say one day your plotter is broken and you need to publish to new plotter. Or you need to plot it on other office that has different type of plotter. Your previous setup will not work. Do you have to modify page setup for all files all over again? Of course not! Let’s see some workaround you can do.
DWF (or DWFx) is not only for design review purpose. You can consider to publish your drawing to DWF first, then plot it to your plotter.DWF format is device independent. You can send and plot it anywhere. If the system can recognize the plotter, you can plot it there.
