See how SDI APS extends Windows printing

Windows Printing SDI APS
Requires a user to select a "sheet" size Simply select a roll size attached to the plotter
Print size is constrained by sheet size Boundless virtual sheet size
User wastes paper with multiple attempts to get the intended print Simple user control of scale and bounds
Windows printing is prone to freeze if the processes overload the print queue, forcing the user to reboot the spooler Extends Windows printing with highspeed seamless printing on specialized printers
  User can set tiling, paneling, scaling, and centering without additional programming
