Appropriate Plotter (replacement for designjet1255cm+)


Appropriate Plotter (replacement for designjet1255cm+)

Dear group.

I´m looking for an appropriate replacement for our old designjet 1255. I
know that plotter configuration is still not easy with pro/E so I want to
make sure that everything will work smoothly after switching to a new
plotter. Unfortunately PTC on their “certified hardware page”gives you only
HP plotters and some of them are quite old

Are there any recommendations?

Thanks in advance. Rainer

We went with an HP DesignJet T2300 because we wanted the scanning/copying capability as well as the plotting. Took a little bit of setup as we were switching from a really old DesignJet 750 but it works perfectly. The copying capability let us eliminate an OCE large format copier andy the scanning let us scan in a lot of old hand drawn tooling drawings.
