/ ˈflætˌbed ˈplɑːtər /
Množina reči flatbed plotter je flatbed plotters.
A plotter in which paper is held on a flat platform and a pen moves along both axes, traveling across the paper to draw an image. This method is slightly more accurate than that used by drum plotters, which move the paper under the pen, but requires more space. Flatbed plotters can also accept a wider variety of media, such as vellum and acetate, because the material does not need to be flexible. See also plotter. Compare drum plotter, pinch-roller plotter.
