Plotting

Our computer lab is equipped with two HP DesignJet Z6200 Photo Production Printers that offer flexibility and power.

The cost for using the plotter is $5 per square foot. Our plotters do not use CS Print. Plots must be paid for with your Carolina Card at the Help Desk. Faculty and students authorized to bill a university account must bring a completed departmental authorization form signed by either the chair, dean, director or business/office manager of the department. We require this form because we must have authorization from the appropriate person in order to collect funds. Exceptions will not be made. An authorized signature is required. Bring the printed form with you to make prints.  If you have any questions please contact the helpdesk. Please inform the Help Desk of the charge prior to printing.  

In order to print, you must log in a lab computer with your Blackboard username and password.  We recommend allowing ample time to print because plotters are first come, first serve.  We also recommend bringing a PDF version of your document in case there are any errors with images or fonts.  

Below are links to instructions for using the plotter:
