    I need to know how to make a film positive so that the artwork has different shades of the same color. I made one but the dots were not printed. It was a bitmap.

    You have to make it into a halftone image to get the dots.

    Your printer has to support haltones. I do not know if a versacam does or not. Many laser printers do. If the image is small use a post script laser printer. Epson inkjet printers can be used but you have to have expensive software to convert the image to halftones.
