Technical Information

  • Maximum print area: 3' x 50' (according to HP's website) A0 preset works on ubuntu.
  • The printer is hooked up to the IBM ThinkPad immediately to its right. The ThinkPad has all the software on it to print pretty much anything you want to the printer.


The ThinkPad is dedicated to printing whatever you like on the DesignJet 755CM. It contains the following software:

  • Inkscape (latest as of 2/28/2013)
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader IX
  • Adobe Creative Suite CS2
    • Photoshop CS2
    • Illustrator CS2
    • InDesign CS2

The computer is on the network as Printy. You can connect to it and transfer your files (there's a public share called "Printing") that way or just use the USB ports (located on the left).
