CAD Plotters 

By David Gerber - Support - A2K Technologies

Plot styles transfer over when you migrate your workspaces, however, there are times when you want to use someone else’s plot style or have a company-wide plot style that you would like to install onto your machine. 

This can be achieved in two ways: 

  1. Type in the command - “STYLESMANAGER” - in an open CAD drawing and the pop-up will automatically come up where the .ctb/.stb files are stored. 
    1. Copy and paste the files into this folder to install the plotter onto your CAD workspace. 
  2. You can go directly to the following UNC path and copy/paste the file there without the need to open CAD - C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD 20xx\Rxx.x\enu\Plotters\Plot Styles 
    1. Hint - Copy and paste: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk - in the Windows File Explorer to get to the AutoCAD 20xx folder faster.
