  • Computer drafting printing

    Computer drafting programs are used effectively for all manner of drafting and have virtually replaced manual drafting. Small size computer-generated drawings can be printed on normal computer printers. However, larger drawings require a plotter. Older plotters used pencils, pens, or felt pens, but the new plotters are laser-based or jet printers and are capable of multiple colours. They are made to print all the sizes of drawings. Plotters also print well on vellum and some other non-paper media.
