    So I've run into an odd problem with our HP designjet 90. I'm trying to print an 30 x 160 cm (11.8 x 62.9 inch) large but for some reason the print always stop at about 130 cm (51 inch)?

    Have anyone had this problem before and/or knows how to fix it?

    Also it likes to take away an inch or two from the edges, anyone know how to prevent that?

    Sounds like the printer is running out of memory on that large file. That's a very large print job. Try allocating more memory to the printer spooler. Also, with the edges, many printers won't print to the edge, they aren't capable of it, so they have built in limits to how near the edge they can print. I'm not familiar with that particular model of printer, but the specs should say how close to the edge it's supposed to print.

    Hi Trafalgar Law, we have the same printer and i am currently experiencing the same problem. I cant figure out how to print 30 x 160 cm. I have wasted a lot of ink already. were you able to print in this dimension? is it possible? i could not risk to make a lot of mistakes again since I am running out of ink and have no money yet to X..
