    plotter

    )A device that draws pictures on paper based on commands from a computer. Plotters differ from printers in that they draw lines using a pen. As a result, they can produce continuous lines, whereas printers can only simulate lines by printing a closely spaced series of dots. Multicolor plotters use different-colored pens to draw different colors.

    In general, plotters are considerably more expensive than printers. They are used in engineering applications where precision is mandatory.
