You can also use Tekla Structures own Printer Catalog printer instances for printing drawings. To do this, you need to set the advanced option XS_USE_OLD_PLOT_DIALOG to TRUE.

Setting XS_USE_OLD_PLOT_DIALOG to TRUE takes the Printer Catalog dialog box in use, and printer instances need to be set.

Setting up printers in the Microsoft Windows environment is not covered in this documentation. It is assumed that printers are set up and tested in your environment. For further information about on setting up printers, contact your system administrator.

If you prefer to print using the "new" printing functionality, see Print to a .pdf file, plot file (.plt) or printer.
