Steve,
as I understand it dxf is fairly standard across all CAD programs

I doubt if you can use standard printers which will only allow A4 and smaller standard sizes of paper as listed in your printer options

re printing on continuous computer paper - I use an old Canon bubblejet bj300/310 printer which can take the long paper. To print I transfer the CAD plan into an old windows 98 computer which has the driver for the canon. I also have modelcad on that computer and when I print I just select the continuous paper option within the program - no need to specify length etc

I could make it easier if I invested in a modern expensive lineprinter using a more up to date printer driver but then my modelcad probably wont work and I would have to learn cad all over again on t'cad 14 which I have actually loaded up and use occasionally for some odd jobs relating to pdf or bmp type dwgs for converting to an old dxf format to reload back onto modelcad for moding/scaling etc. torturous but lets me keep my pennies for models.

cheers

john
