Large Format Printing

Large format black & white or colour plans are produced on our HP T2600dr Designjet printer (wide format printer) which produces high quality large format prints, we keep this running smoothly through a maintenance contract which ensures high quality output is maintained as far as possible.

Large format colour CAD plotting is also possible using the HP Z5200 Designjet printer, although the ouput speed is slower, it produces high quality colour prints, large orders may mean next day delivery is not possible. Please contact us or state in your email if the colour printing is urgent. The most common format printed is PDF files, these allow our customers to see what the finished print will look like before ordering.

Plans can also be sent direct to sites/clients when timescales require it.

CAD Plotting

Plotting direct from Autocad DWG and DXF files is possible via autodesk viewer software. Plans are emailed over stating how many copies of each layout is required, they are then printed, folded and posted direct to the customer. If you use a Plot Style file please email them over with the DWG files so the plans can be printed as intended.

PLT files are accepted, the plotter needs to be set up as a HP T2600.  Drawing Express files are also accepted and printed using the Trial Systems print utility software.

Colour CAD plans are printed on our HP T2600dr colour printer on 80gsm bond paper. Although this machine is not as quick as the old Xerox it produces outstanding results using 6 colour inks, we can also print onto 170gsm matte paper or 190gsm glossy paper if a thicker paper is required.  These will be printed using the HP Z5200.

Plan Copying

Black & white or colour A2, A1 & A0 plans can also be copied straight from an original whether it is a tracing paper, film or white paper copy.  Plans can be reduced and enlarged from 25-400% in a single operation in 0.1% increments.

Whether 1 copy or 100, A3-A0 copies can be printed and delivered to your door.

If you would like to see the high quality prints that the HP T2600dr produces then please contact Lisa to receive a sample in the post.
