    Hi,

    unfortunately you cannot script printer settings (at least not to my knowledge, if anyone knows better, I'd be glad to hear).
    But you can script the complete creation of a print layout. There are no RhinoScript methods for most of the stuff, so there is a lot of Rhino.Command(" something ") involved (like for the "layout" and "detail" commands).
    You can even trigger printing by script (Rhino.Command("-_Print Go")), so if you set up your printer manually before, you are able to print lots of plans automatically.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi everyone,
    first post...

    im wondering wether its possible to script rhino's print output,
    like what printer to use and to define all the options...

    i need adobePDF output of the work im doing to put it into a presentation,
    same angle, etc, and i would love to put all the stuff i have to do manually into a script just to hit one button..

    its for a research project.

    is it possible or do i have to do it manually?
    i searched for it already, without any trace of how to do it...
    looks like there are no functions or commans for the print routine?!?

    thx,
    Andy

Why are these buttons gray?
