Printing and Plotting
Adding a Printer
In most cases the printers in your area will already appear in the printers folder. If you want to print to another printer, click Start->Run and type: “\\con-print1.continuum.tamu.edu” (no quotes) to bring up the department printers. Simply double-click on a printer to install it. Printers are physically located in various graduate office areas throughout the department and in the print room located in CE 216.

How Many Printouts Am I Allowed?
You are allowed unlimited printouts for course material. Printing supplies and maintenance are included in your student fees. Printing abuse will have direct influence over your student fees. Contact the helpdesk if you are out of printing funds, and we will review your case.
Paper and Supplies
If you ever see an error, maintenance, or supply warning on the printer please notify the help desk instead of trying to fix the problem yourself. Plain letter (8.5in X 11in) is provided by the department with your student fees. If the printer you are using requires paper or toner please contact the helpdesk.
Due to the expense of operation, plotters require special access to use. Paper comes in widths of 24in, 36in, and 42in. The maximum paper width is 42in. Plotting is often complex and slow, do not wait until the last minute to plot. For more information on plotting please refer to the plotter instructions or see the help desk.
