Glossary of Printing Terms:
Plotter

A device that draws lines on a piece of paper based on commands received from a computer.

It differs from a printer in that it uses a pencil to draw the lines so it can draw a continuous line where as a printer uses a series of dots.

Multi-color plotters have different color pencils.

Plotters are used when precision is necessary, such as in engineering applications.
