We have decided to start publishing to PDF. The quality is great it saves time and paper. One major gripe I have tho is line weights really don't show tru based on zoom level. What I mean is unless you zoom in, at appears the PDF digital copy is doing some processing. Our drawings rely heavily on line weight appearance. Why must I zoom into the drawing 3-4 times to see the difference in line weights?
I have attached one without zoom activated and one with. Just wondered if this
@Art Vis completely correct that it is about screen resolution. Here are some examples. I am basing this on a wide screen monitor (16:9) as it can be considered to be a 3:4:5 right triangle.
A 30" monitor with 2K resolution:
30" diagonal = 24" horizontal 24"/2000 pixels = 0.012"/pixel = 12 mils = 83 pixels/inch. So the minimum individual pixel will be 12 mil. Anything with a line weight of 12 mils will show as 12 mil. Depending on the display driver algorithm, line thicknesse
