You don't have hidden lines off do you?

Depending on how your setup, a layer might be turned off.  For us the layer names have a suffix of "HID"

Select the viewport, Right click, select shade plot, and check to see if it's set to "Hidden"

When I plot to pdf it looks fine. It just looks weird in cad for some reason. On different machine it works just great

We just figured it out. The database was not mapped properly. It did not read all the settings
