HP Designjet 50ps - Printer Margins Deducted from Printable Area

Issue:
The job is larger than the printable area (handling of oversize formats).
Cause
By default, the paper's margin area is automatically taken into account when a document is printed. This is necessary because, for mechanical reasons, all printers have a generic non-printing margin. For example, information would be lost when a full A4 format page is printed on an A4 format sheet, leaving white edges. If the job is larger than both the printable area and the paper selected (for example, A3 on A4 paper), the print job will be aborted, and an error message will be issued. In the case of the HP Designjet 50ps printer, the non-printable areas are 5 mm leading edge and at the sides and 12 mm at the trailing edge.
  note:
In the duplex mode, the non-printable area is 12 mm both at the leading and trailing edges because the paper must be turned.
The HP Designjet 50ps Print Manager provides three different solutions to this problem. To make the appropriate setting, use the Layout list box within JobStream or Print Manager.
Clip
The job is output at a scale of 1:1 even though the printable area is exceeded. In this case a centered section of the job will be printed. As opposed to the normal behavior applied for jobs when no special option has been selected for handling oversize formats, this approach makes it possible to print jobs that are significantly larger than the paper selected (for example, A3 jobs on A4 paper).
Scale
The print output is scaled to the printable area of the paper selected, maintaining the aspect ratio.
Tiling
The job is spread over several pages 1:1 so that it can be output at a scale of 1:1. In this way, jobs that are larger than the available paper size can be output at full size but have to be made up of several pages afterwards. The Multiple pages option is not available here.

Tiling
For Tiling, you can also specify the type of tiling:
  • Overlap lets you define an overlapping area that is then output on both abutting pages. Thus, the pages need not be cut exactly at the print edge to merge them.
  • If Automatic is selected for Orientation, the program tries to position the page as economically as possible with regard to material. For example, if a job that is only slighter longer than A4 in portrait orientation were rotated, it would fit on two sheets of paper instead of four.
  • Normally, positioning of the job will start in the top left corner of the first sheet, and only those "remnants" that do not fit on this sheet will be output on the next sheets. The Center output option allows you to center the entire job evenly across all sheets.
  • In addition, you can assign the output trim marks so that the mounted result can be cut to the original size afterwards.
