How to print a poster for Capstone presentation ?

Capstone poster demo is scheduled on March 30th, 2017.  The plotters will be reserved for this demo in the duration between March 20th to March 30, 2017.  Here is the procedure for how to print a poster in this duration.

Plotter Reservation Procedure

Plotters and ledger size (11"x17") printers are currently available to ENCS students, in H0964-00, during the normal Operating Hours of the Service Desk in the Hall Building.

Three plotters are available: RASP, CHISEL and Malet. If you want to print a ledger size drawing, i.e. 11"x17", you have at your disposal a B&W printer (FORGE) and a color printer (PALETTE).

Public Calendars are posted, to facilitate the reservation process, as plotting with appointment takes the priority. The reservations of each plotter are published on these web calendars


To reserve a plotter, please fill out the Plotting Reservation Request Form. Once the form has been submitted, you will receive an AutoReply email containing the RT ticket number in the Subject header. This indicates that your request has been queued in our system. 

Make a note of the RT ticket number, as this will be your reference number. Wait until you receive a reply to your request, which will either confirm or propose an alternate booking.

Each ENCS student is given a plotting quota of 25 pages for the entire program. A printing quota of 50 pages is given for the ledger size prints. These quotas are non-renewable.

We ask you to convert any poster to Adobe PDF file format, prior to your arrival in the plotting area. You are also expected to bring the file in its' original format.  The file can be stored on a USB key or a network share. Very dark backgrounds are strongly discouraged.
