Please note that the screen colours for weighted black pens have been unified in the PW standard. Please see the comments at the top of each PMF, eg:

PW_full_scale_12d_black.pmf

Code: Select all

// $SET_UPS\PW_full_scale_12d_black.pmf

// PW (Public Works) PMF (Plotter Mapping File) for FULL scale plotting, eg: A1.
// To be used in conjuction with $SET_UPS\colours.4d (or similar).

// The "12d" group colour numbers (1-15 & 316) plot with black pens of specific weights.
//
//
// Otherwise, this PMF is identical to $SET_UPS\PW_full_scale_12d_colour.pmf.

// The "pen*" & "txt*" colour numbers (400 series) plot with black pens of specific weights.
// The "Acad Black Pen" group colour numbers (1001-1009 & 1032) plot with black pens of specific weights.
// The "Mstn Black Pen" group colour numbers (1300-1309)        plot with black pens of specific weights.

// Black Pen Line Weights
// 0.13mm = [light] grey, purple
// 0.18mm = [dark] grey
// 0.25mm = white, cyan, black
// 0.35mm = yellow, magenta, off_yellow
// 0.50mm = red, green, brown, dark_red, dark_green
// 0.70mm = blue, dark_blue
// 1.00mm = orange

// The "PPF" group colour numbers (900 series) plot with specific black/greyscale/colour pens of specific weights.

// All OTHER colour numbers plot in their native colour with a 0.25mm pen.
PW_full_scale_12d_colour.pmf

Code: Select all

// $SET_UPS\PW_full_scale_12d_colour.pmf

// PW (Public Works) PMF (Plotter Mapping File) for FULL scale plotting, eg: A1.
// To be used in conjuction with $SET_UPS\colours.4d (or similar).

// The "12d" group colour numbers (1-15 & 316) plot in their native colours with a 0.25mm pen, except:
//      a) white  (7) plots to black,
//      b) yellow (5) plots to a darker yellow.
// Otherwise, this PMF is identical to $SET_UPS\PW_full_scale_12d_black.pmf.

// The "pen*" & "txt*" colour numbers (400 series) plot with black pens of specific weights.
// The "Acad Black Pen" group colour numbers (1001-1009 & 1032) plot with black pens of specific weights.
// The "Mstn Black Pen" group colour numbers (1300-1309)        plot with black pens of specific weights.

// Black Pen Line Weights
// 0.13mm = [light] grey, purple
// 0.18mm = [dark] grey
// 0.25mm = white, cyan, black
// 0.35mm = yellow, magenta, off_yellow
// 0.50mm = red, green, brown, dark_red, dark_green
// 0.70mm = blue, dark_blue
// 1.00mm = orange

// The "PPF" group colour numbers (900 series) plot with specific black/greyscale/colour pens of specific weights.

// All OTHER colour numbers plot in their native colour with a 0.25mm pen.
These PMFs are used by the new, explicitly mapped plotters defined in the PDF, Windows and XPS groups (only) of every plotter-box in 12d Model V14+.

The default PMF, pmf.4d (a copy of PW_full_scale_12d_colour.pmf) is used by other plotters that are not explicitly mapped, or not explicitly unmapped. These are mainly the plotters in the hard-wired 12d group.

Note that DWG and DGN plotters do not use PMFs.
