Back Wall Printers

  1. The plotter printers on the back wall (labeled ITECS-PLT-001 and ITECS-PLT-002) are only accessible from these two computers in the FWH EOS Lab. You can use Google Drive, a USB flash drive, or a number of other methods to transfer the file to one of these two machines. They’ll be denoted by signs on the wall.
