Sorry for the triple post, but I have good news :D

I was just mucking around with the belt and pulleys on the X axis, and for some reason, it's decided to work properly now:





No idea what I did that fixed it, but as long as it stays fixed, I'm happy :)

Cheers,
Dan

Draftsight plotter driver for hpgl files
« Reply #53 on: February 28, 2011, 02:17:54 PM »
I have used Draftsight to create DXF files but on occasion I like to use plotter files. I cannot create the plot files directly in this program so I was trying to find a plotter driver that I could print to file. The ones that were recommended to me were the drivers for HP 7475a or HP 7580a. The problem is the HP download site does not have these drivers anymore and I cannot seem to locate them. In addition, I read somewhere that they are not supported on Win XP. So, question is what plotter driver is available and where can I download it ?

Thanks
