Low cost, high quality, bright white, smooth surface, doubleweight coated matt inkjet paper offering excellent price performance with brilliant vivid colours, best resolution and good ink absorption, sharp lines and fast drying time. Suitable for all wide format inkjet printers. Ideal heavyweight paper for display work, presentations, posters and wallcharts, and very popular for students' final end of year presentation work.
Large format inkjet printing has its origins in the classic CAD applications, with inkjet replacing the traditional pen plotter over 20 years ago. Today, the demand for high quality media for 2D mono and colour plan printing is as high as ever. The Xativa CAD media collection meets this demand by providing high quality CAD media in both cut sheet and roll formats.
From its inception CAD applications have been at the forefront of large format printing and demand is still extremely high. As software develops and brings advances to 2D and 3D renders, Xativa continues to keep ahead of the today’s demands.
The Xativa media brand has been established for over 15 years and offers one of the largest selections of specialist high quality media and textile portfolios in the industry today. Among the 1600+ products, which cover nearly every aspect of indoor and outdoor printing applications and print technologies, lies an extensive range of CAD media.
CAD drawings are used for a massive array of industries including engineering, electronic, aerospace and architectural plans and presentations, to name but a few. In turn, each application requires specific media to suit the printer, the drawing content and the use of the print. The Xativa range of CAD large format print media meets all these diverse requirements, from 2D monochrome line drawings to full colour 3D rendering.
Many of Xativa's CAD and technical papers have chain of custody certification from FSC® and PEFC™ certification bodies as they are part of our Xativa Sustain range, offering reassurance that you are using media from a sustainable source. Please contact us if you require documentation to support your use of FSC media.
The entire Xativa range of CAD media is available in sizes from A4 to A0 sheets and roll sizes from 17 inch to 60 inches wide. A range of weights from 80gsm to 180gsm are available plus a choice of coatings and substrates suitable for both indoor office and on-site use.
Where quick, low cost printing is needed, uncoated media is ideal for everyday plan and 3D line draft printing, with weights ranging from 75gsm to 90gsm. Coated media is suitable for most 2D and 3D plan drawings with high resolution line quality and colour area fills. With a range of weights up to 180gsm, you're sure to find the ideal media for routine colour design and plan printing that requires colour fills in 2D and simple 3D projections. If you need full renders and photographic simulation of designs, then photo papers are the best solution.
Architectural drawings have to convey a lot of information to a lot of departments; from developing a design idea into a coherent proposal, communicating ideas and concepts, convince clients on design and enabling building contractors to work to.
Mechanical engineering drawings assist in the creation, modification, analysis or optimisation of an engineering design and images must convey information such as materials, processes, dimensions and tolerances according to application specific conventions.
Due to the level of accuracy and detail required for 2D architectural plans and engineering drawings, Xativa has a extensive range of lightweight and affordable matt uncoated papers that give you the best quality output from your large format CAD printer.
Location, location, location! Site plans are paramount in development projects and are a graphic representation of the arrangement of buildings, parking, drives, landscaping and any other structure located within the developments boundaries. In addition to including fine-details and large area fills that represent areas of land and in order to prevent cockling or over saturation, heavier weight and coated media with satin or gloss finishes are recommended.
Xativa also offers film media for direct output for when site plans are used on-site and need enough durability to cope with handling, transport and weather conditions.
Xativa CAD media range is ideal for schematic design drawings which include many different types of configurations such as sketches, pans, diagrams and cost estimates. Matt coated, heavyweight media ensures durability, prevents cockling and image bleeding from large area of flood fills and yet still keeps the fine line and numerical accuracy needed for this most demanding of applications.
3D rendering has transformed the way engineers and architects are designing and creating new buildings, structures and public spaces. our Xativa range of photo papers offer the most accurate and visually exciting way to reproduce structure, mapping days and photo-realistic imagery, enabling modern technical printers to output to the highest quality and create powerful images in rich colour to help convey the complete design.
