The production of pdf through python is misbehaving.
The following code demonstrates the inconsistencies.
Run it in a new rhino file.
The code generates its own objects to be printed. (updated the script with ellipses instead)
It seems that output resolution is limited with no warning.
Even if I specified “vector mode”.
Furthermore, It is working sometimes on large format and sometimes it doesn’t.
Please could you take a look ? Verify if it is working on your side ?
I take the opportunity to express a wish : automatic paper size (not custom from OS) in the Rhino print dialog. The use of python is a way to achieve that. With few hick ups.
I need frequently to print patterns 1:1 scaled on large paper size, usually 36" width.
But the height is always different. Managing this through OS (printer driver) is completely insane.
There are too many steps.
So, a way to adapt the paper size to layout would be really nice. We would be able to print a series of layout of different format in a same pdf file.
The simple fact of not being able to print a portrait and a landscape in a same pdf is breaking the workflow when you have to think twice before mixing different formats in your layouts knowing you’ll have to manage them separately.
