PictureFrame problem


#1

Found another minor problem with the PictureFrame command. When using large renders in the frame that get resized down end up with lot of fuzzies in the image when I print out as a PDF. The original image was 3000 x 2000 pixel render and inserted into an11 x 17 drawing with the picture frame at 337.5 x 225mm. I resized the images to 25% and they come out fine in the PDF now. The original printed fine directly from rhino to an 11x17 inkjet.

Can you send us a sample model so we can re-create the problem?

Here is a file of the 2d drawing with the pictureframes in them and the pdf
with the fuzzy bits in them. The PDF was created with CutePDF.

Hope this helps

Are you printing with Raster or Vector? Your lines and dimensions look like vector, but I didn’t think you could print pictureframes with vector.

Yes I use vector setting on the print menu. Mainly because that is the
default setting. I don’t think I have ever done it any other way.

If I used smaller renders the problem does not appear.

The image used for the pictureframe was not included or embedded. Can you post or email that, too?

Used Adobe PDF print (I have Acrobat).
Printed using both raster and vector. I knew the lines would be pixelated in raster, but even the pictureframe printed rougher in raster…
I don’t see the stuff you’re getting. Wonder if it’s the pdf print utility you’re using.
