printing problems at proffesional printers

Question

i am using VW10 and have brought some stuff to the print shop. i know that the printers have VW9 so i saved the drawings as version 9 (as well as 10) in case of problems. they tell me that only parts of the drawings are coming out (like text but no lines...). when i reduce the scale or print on tiled 8.5x11s on my canon i550 at home they print out fine. i don't know what the problem could be and i need help asap! Has anyone else had similar problems or know of VW printers in Montreal? the place i brought my stuff to specialises in autocad and aren't very helpful.

thanks in advance.

After struggling with this issue, we started using Adobe Acrobat several years ago to produce PDF files to send to print shops. This method has worked well for us, and really simplifies the whole process of printing.

Is the printing service using the VW aplication or the VW 9 Viewer?

What version are they using?

What type of printer are they using?

What OS are they using?

* There is also a Vw 10 viewer which they can download for free and install. They can open your VW 10 files and print away.
