Hello,

I have a simple skectch of a bench i have been working on. So i thought my sketch to be ready and i tried to print it but only the solids printed not the colors i gave them. Then i read the forums to turn it into pdf, so that's what i did only to discover that it is without the solid colors. *Note it is viewd in isometric and displayed in full shading mode for the colors to show. Have i missed a step or what is the issue with it?

I am clueless what to do. I tried filling the drawings in top view mode but nothing, since i already have them filled in trimetric. Then i upgraded the pdf print to pdf print995...something version, that only gives me the solids without fills. Maybe somebody with more experience with models could share their experience. I think i should be able to print the drawings out with color fills without any issues?

It would be helpful to upload the ViaCAD file, if possible.

I had trouble with printing to pdf with full shading as well. I did post on this forum somewhere, can't remember if we solved it though. Got some really weird results otherwise, overlapping drawing view boundaries etc

I understand nothing! Why do you not making just a Model To Sheet? And Print it with a good PDF-Printer? Printing without colors.... It is useless.

The SharkCAD ViaCAD PDF Export is not good, because of the bad resolution.

I have a simple HP Deskjet ink printer 2600 series for color printing. But in my opinion it should not make no difference what your printer type is. Since it is the file format that fails the outcome of the paper. As requested i can add my sketch plan for everyone to give it a try.

I made a test with SharkLT9, and this printed your sketch in a strange way, then i used the Photo Rendering Tool. Have your ViaCad a Model to SHeet Function? Or Photo Rendering?
