Upgrade from Accuplot 100 to HP Designjet Printer

scitexnzscitexnz Posts: 2
We are looking to upgrade our Accuplot 100 plotter to an HP Designjet printer. Possibly an HP Designjet T830. The only supported HP Designjet products in the Accumark 13 release notes are very old models (Designjet 600 & 700)

Will an HP Designjet T830 work with Accumark version 13 so we can plot to it directly as we do to our Accuplot 100? I don't mind if there is a bit of technical setup required but I would like the plotting process to remain the same for our operators.

The only HP designjet related post I can find in this forum is related to someone having issues with an HP T520 which is printing stretched images. 

If anyone is using a newer HP Designjet with Accumark 13 can you let me know how it has been working for you.

    You can try a windows or hp device driver in AccuMark Hardware Config and use the driver for the specific wide format printer/plotter. However, I am not sure it will work for markers, depending on the length. The alternative is to generate HPGL or DXF output and plot through an alternate interface. There are so many new plotters available and Gerber tests the plotters we sell. What is the average length of the files you plot and are you looking to print production markers or patterns?

    @scitexnz Any plotter which supports HPGL/PLT/DXF can work with AccuMark. If You concern is about direct plotting than there might be an option of Direct Plot directory in with that plotter's interface...
