    I have a new HP T520 printer, I'm trying to print a drawing from cad, no matter what I try I can't get the title block to print, everything else prints but the border. The tile block is on a printable layer, color is just black, it's within the printable area, still no luck. Any ideas?

    What program do you print from? Can you try to print as an image the same file, does it still clip? It's either wrong media size (e.g. settings in driver) or something with the settings in your program you print from/something in the file.

    I know nothing about printing from CAD, but is it a different color of black? That's typically what happens in the cut vinyl world; the color looks the same, but its value is slightly different and the RIP puts it in another group.

    I have converted the image to a PDF and print on my other printer for an 11x17 and no problem, then I print on the hp no luck. If I open the PDF I see the board but still will not print it.

    It's possible that it's not truly black, I will try a color and see.

    Are you using Adobe Illustrator to set up your .pdf If so make sure your artwork is within the Artboard.

    Corel too. You can also select everything you want to export to pdf. If you dont and its off the page then itll be blank.
