Graph Plotters


What it is:

Plotters are a specialist kind of printer which are able to draw high quality images on very large pieces of paper (for example 3 foot wide, by 10 foot long).


They’re used in architecture, engineering and map making to draw plans of buildings, diagrams of machines or large scale maps. They can also be used for many other similar tasks.
