Best Plotter for VW 2008 and Leopard

Question

Hello,

We have had so much trouble plotting to our HP DesignJet 800PS since we upgraded everything and realize that our machine is a bit old and could stand to be replaced. Does anyone know which large format printer works best with VW 2008 and Leopard? Our main issue right now is that the patterns will not print correctly and I've tried everything that has been recommended by Nemetschek and HP.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Your 800PS probably has a a lot of life in it. I'm still using a 650C-PS thats over 12 years old.

A cheaper solution would be to use the third party plotter driver X-Rip from Microspot. It smokes anything else I've ever used. Printing usually starts within a few seconds of the spool window closing. The quality is as good as Postscript. I am currently using it in Leopard 10.5.1 and it is working fine.

I dont think the problem is related to your 800ps.

There are three topics started in the last two months regarding problems with VW 2008 and HP designjet plotters. As I have said in the other threads, I believe this is a VW 2008 issue.

A quick solution would be appreciated.
