Printing from an AutoCAD Generated PDF

by Wayne
(Arizona)

In AutoCad 2012 the line weights default is 20. When I make a PDF and send it to a third party to print 36”x42” it is all pixelated and cannot read. However when it is printed 8.5”x11” it is okay.

I have changed the AutoCad dwg. line weight default to 5 and again make a new PDF and send it to a third party to print 36”x42” it read okay but when printed on 8.5”x11” it is so light it cannot be read.

What do I need to do to get both to print okay from the same PDF?
