The plotter is also a device used to transfer something from a computer to a sheet of paper, except that pens are used instead of ink cartridges.
Plotter were earlier, much more in use than today!
Previously, these were used by architects, tailors, designers to print larger areas, or better, to create (print) architect's plans of houses. Or other things that could not be done on the printer. Although these devices were often used for computer-aided designs, they are still in use today!
Plotters can work on very large sheets of paper while incorporating high resolution. They can print on a variety of flat materials such as plywood, aluminum, sheet steel, cardboard and plastic. Plotters can draw the same pattern thousands of times without image loss. However, plotters are quite large compared to a traditional printer (laser, ink). Plotters are also much more expensive than a conventional printer.
