Plotting and Printing:

During the spring 2022 semester, the college will maintain three plotters in the southwest corner of the third floor and one in BUC 303.  The college will provide paper, ink, and all necessary maintenance.  Students are not to change the paper in any plotter.  If paper or ink are running low on a plotter, please notify or anyone in the college front office (room 235).  To plot, you will need to put your project on a USB drive and use the computer connected to the plotter of your choice (i.e., the plotters are not currently on the college network).  Follow the instructions on the computer.

There are two laser printers in the CMP student lounge (AAC227) which are connected to a computer for student use.

The college has two black and white HP laser printers and two large format Epson inkjet printers on the north and south sides of the west counters of the middle studio on the third floor. To print to one of the printers in the third floor central studio, follow the instructions here:
