I had the large  ibm calcomp plotter  if  big   wide  one we have the  same 
... it is in the hp display case at smecc  museum 
there was a fortran graphics text book  we had adn I had gotten   with a HP 
3000 and it had a interface  board  ( parallel interface??  too many  
I  made it  plot  squares etc  .. as I  remember  the  hp intrinsics may 
have had  some support  for this..
once I did that  i put it aside and went  back to playing with  the  HP 
multi-pen HP plotters we sold  back them at Computer Exchange  Inc.

The book  'The Minicomputer in the Laboratory' by James W Cooper covers 
using an
X-Y  plotter with an 11/05, and has assembly listings and a whole bunch of  
stuff about scientific plotting. Also a lot of info on using the  LPS-11 
There are plenty of copies out there and quite cheap too. It's  an 
excellent book
and could be of use to  you.
