Which printer should I use and where is it?

All of these printers are fast, and are capable of double-sided printing.

Using the Plotter

To print to either the MCS plotter or the ALCF plotter, please consult with the Help Desk directly. In order to prevent paper waste from misprints and printer malfunctions from incorrectly loaded paper, all jobs to the plotter must be submitted to the help desk for printing.

Jobs should be submitted to the help desk in PDF format along with the required dimensions of the image. Both plotters have a printing width of 42".

The plotter is located in 240/2d11.

What is my limit for using the printer?

There is no quota, limit, or charge on the amount of paper you can use while you are in the division. Please, however, be considerate of the trees and expense. If you are going to print off a long document, print the document double column and rotated; for example, enscript -2r foobar. When possible use on-line viewing interfaces, such as ghostview or gv (for postscript files), xdvi (for dvi files), Adobe Reader (for PDFs), or your web browser where appropriate.

What happened to the single-sided print queues?

By default, the large copiers print double sided. You can specify single-sided from print dialog of your program. From the command line in Linux, you should specify:

  lpr -o sides=one-sided <filename>
