|All the computers in the LA computer lab are configured identical as well as the 25 laptops.
Please remember to save often as working.
It is recommended that you purchase a backup drive to save your work.
Remember to always log off the computer when finished to avoid another user using your netID for printing, etc...
Please avoid drinks and food in the lab.
Please make sure all files are saved as PDF's before plotting.
|Boards size should generally not exceed 42" x 36". Boards larger than this take too long to plot and hold up other users.
Please try to not use a solid color or pattern as a background. This uses excessive amounts of ink, and has a negative effect on the department trying to keep the price of plotting to a minimum.
Send boards to the plotter with the longest edge at the top. The plotter can print documents 42 inches wide, so for example, a board that is 42 inches wide and 36 inches long, can be sent as is using portrait orientation. A board that is 36 inches wide and 42 inches long, however, should be rotated 90° (so that the 42 inch edge is at the top) and sent using portrait orientation. It is recommended to use default paper sizes if possible.
To ensure that your entire board shows on the printed page, be sure to leave approximately a 1 inch margin around all edges of your finished design.
