Risograph Service Interruption 9-11-19

Due to unforeseen technical issues the Grad Lab's Risograph machine is currently limited in its printing capabilities. We are working closely with our vendor to get service for the machine ASAP and will message out when repairs have been completed and the Risograph is back in full working order. During this temporary period while we are waiting for our vendor to complete service, all print jobs must be scheduled through Patrick Hunt and Ben McNutt until the issue is resolved.

New Printer in Print Lab

The Grad Lab has a new printer! The Lab now has an Epson P20000. This printer is capable of printing on roll paper that is up to 64” wide. There do not seem to be a large number of papers available at the full 64” width yet but the Lab has purchased 60” Silver Rag and 64” Epson Enhanced Matte. Printing on this printer will require a printing reservation to be made in advance via the Contact Page on this website.

Drobo Links

The Grad Lab Drobo and Mavericks seem to be having a bit of trouble communicating. As a result there are 2 links that appear when you connect to the Drobo. Please note that you should be using "GradLabDrobo" Link and not the link with your user name. To find your user folder you must follow both the "GradLabDrobo" and "students" links then locate your folder in the list of user names. Please see the Screen shots below to elaborate.


Do not try to use this folder it will not work!
