What are the plotters?
Our plotters can be thought of as high quality color printers with large scale printouts. The largest job that they can print out is 36 inches x 108 inches (3 x 9 Feet). If you are interested in using them, talk to a Technology Consultant and they can guide you in. As mentioned above, the charge is $3.00 per linear foot. The plotters are limited to non-commercial use.
Are there any learning applications for printing projects?
If you would like to learn how to use an application such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop, or similar applications, in order to produce a print or plot project, you have a couple options:
Academic Technology’s CITT offers instructional development, graphics (Photoshop) and design courses to the UF community.
You may have other training opportunities depending on your affiliation (student, employee) and area (HSC, IFAS, E&G). Visit the UF Training Opportunities site for more information.
