Regarding a plotter as a router.
If I remember correctly from my plotter software days, you can issue a
command that slows the pen movements down. I think you can define the
acceleration rate. Alternatively you can postprocessor the plotter file to
find any large plotter movements and recode them as a series of smaller
movements. I have actually hand typed/edited plotter commands to correct a
simple error in the plot file instead of reloading the drawing into the CAD
system and then replotting.

I'll look at my cheat sheet of HP plotter commands tonight.
