How to Plot Hidden Lines

How you plot hidden lines in AutoCAD depends upon whether you are plot from model space or paper space. We recommend that you plot from paper space.

These instructions are written for AutoCAD 2009. Specific dialogs and commands might be different in previous versions of AutoCAD, but the basic ideas have not changed since AutoCAD 2000.

Plotting Hidden Lines From Paper Space

To plot hidden lines in paper space, you need to tell the viewport you are plotting to hide the entities in it before plotting them.

  1. Type MVIEW at the command line.
  2. Type S for shadeplot.
  3. Type H for hidden
  4. Select the viewport.

This setting will be saved with the drawing.

Plotting Hidden Lines From Model Space

To plot hidden lines in model space, you need to set the Shade plot setting to Hidden.

  1. Type PLOT at the command line.
  2. Expand the Plot dialog so that the Shaded viewport options are visible. Do this by clicking the arrow in the bottom right of the dialog.
  3. Set Shade plot to Hidden.

This setting will be saved with the drawing.

If you plot from the command line, you need to select a detailed plot configuration. One of the prompts will be Enter shade plot setting. Answer Hidden to that prompt to plot with hidden lines.
