I have an old plotter (Anagraph Ana Elite AE 75E) and would like to hook it up to my iMac.
I have Illustrator CS3 on the iMac (OS X version 10.4.11; 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM)
Will the plotter plot directly from Illustrator or do I need a driver (if available)
I got very limited information in a web search, but did find some tech specs from OCE which states the 75E uses HPGL ( PC based printer language, but should work with Macs ) driver(s). You will have to dig further to get more information, but I would say that you will need a driver compatable with OSX Tiger. Could you print direct from Illustrator? I doubt it. Not without a driver which would work via your iMac's system software.
