Understanding Plotter Paper already may date you. It will always be a USA major resource.
There are boats today that use a plotting machine to plot a course through high and low waters. Although there is, at times, a boat that may have a depth plotter in which they may print the plots of course to review them later the papers used are not quite the same as the majority use and printing staff that understand plotter papers.
It is the Pen Plotter’s Fault. Before the canon inkjet or hp office jet printer many were drawing by hand or had a pen plotting devise in use, or were trying to get one. Just as the name says it used a Pen to draw vector points A to B, B to C etc and often revealed a print just as if it were done by hand. To scale a blueprint model on paper to show the doors and windows of a building project or a myriad of uses in building the future from the 1970’s forward. Such is true because of the number of US Plotter Printers out there today. (and just a side note if you are in America you will be able to find all you need with us for this article like all our articles are going to be copied or plagiarized to such a level by those in UK or some company working for Staples or Office max that it will become hard to find a quality of what ones needs on the net. Suggested to just go to our website and book-mark the page for the internet is just going to become more saturated as days go by) The difference with our company one will find is not only customer service but a quality that has LESS issues, LESS jamming, and faster turnaround. Everything else is just internet noise. If you own your own company that stands behind quality you already know this and in all promise this is not said with any disrespect nor a ‘boasting attitude’ yet there is a difference and your $3,000.00 plus cost plotter machine is worth no more issues, no sputter printing and no one at the end of the phone saying, “what?, I am sorry… what?”.
Ok – back to the topic of plotting around. After the pen plotter, which those are still sold and refurbished, the idea of the plot matrix to dot matrix gave the engineers at Hewlett Packard an idea; if we could generate a printer that sat on the desk or was so user friendly that those who could afford it could use it on their yacht boat or architect firm and we should think about the office. That was all it took hence the Office Jet was created … more to come
