Slow/Unresponsive Printing to PDF

After the 10.13.3 update to High Sierra I’m having some issues printing layouts to pdfs. I’ve restarted Rhino, RhinoWIP, the computer, did a PRAM reset and am unable to print what I need.

Along with that issue when selecting vector instead of raster it still prints out as a raster in PDF format.

Uninstalling and reinstalling both Rhino for Mac and RhinoWIP for Mac did nothing, along with another PRAM reset and SMC reset (because why not). Uninstalled a bunch of programs that had nothing to do with rhino to make sure there wasn’t a conflict but still not fix.

Export to AI works fine but printing to PDF in vector output does not work, printing in general is either slow or causes a crash

Apologies for the slow reply.

Thanks for submitting your system info. Did you update your printer drivers? You also have a number of third-party kernel extension - some I recognize; some I don’t. You might try booting to safe mode (which disables those extensions temporarily until you reboot) and seeing if the issue persists.
