Plotters (Printer Types)

A plotter is a device mainly used for CAD (computer aided design). A plotter can print out characters but its purpose is to print out drawings. The plotter generally takes much larger paper than a page printer also plotters come in both moving pen and ink jet type.What is the difference between a printer and a plotter? The printing process is different in the fact that the page description language is transmitted from a computer to a printer while it is the image command that is transmitted from computer to a plotter.
Some printers can function as a plotter by emulating the image commands of the plotter.
