higher pen thickness while plotting

Whenever I try to print my file, The line thickness is a lot and hence the print is all messy.

 

I tried updating the pen thickness in pentable but still the results are same. Attaching pics for your reference.

Hello SWAPNIL AMRITKAR

l think there must be some structure in *.PNT file. See my PNT file, that works fine for me (Creo 2.0 M120)

Original *.PNT is attached try to test it.

Hi Milan Bonka

Your document is helpful. But as you can see the pentable I have attached there is no mention as to which pen refers to what. How do I then change the values/How do I designate pen to type pf lines?@martin_hanak

See this page:  Creo Parametric Help Center

Edit: Martin Hanak's page is better.  Use his if you have access to support.‌

Make sure you are actually using the pen table file when printing.

In the example below, my pen table file is called zerotable.pnt.

If you are using save, export to PDF, you must also specify the usage of the pentable.

Hi,

individual pen properties has to be separated by semicolon, see reply of Milan Bonka for inspiration.

I read last week the help provided with Creo and they wrote that thickness must be specified in cm or inch but not mm. Below a screen capture of the french help.
