There are several printers for use by students. You default printer will depend on the computer that you are logged into. The printers in the CIP and Container rooms can only be used from those rooms!
Printer in the MiniPool (next to the main entrance)
The HP LaserJet 602 printer in the MiniPool can be used from the computers in that room. It is called minipool in the printer selection dialog.
Printer in CIP1
The HP LaserJet 602 printer in CIP1 (room 1151) can be used from the computers in that room. It is called cip1 in the printer selection dialog.
Printers in the CIP container
In room 1 and room 2 in the container building, there are HP LaserJet 3150 printers with automatic duplex units. They are called cont1 and cont2 in the printer selection dialog.
Copy machine in the foyer
This copy machine will be removed by the Department in March 2016. We have installed a printer in the Mini Pool instead.
You can print on the Ricoh copy machine with automatic duplex unit in the foyer of the Physics Department (just behind the door on the left). This printer is called foyer in the printer selection dialog. The print jobs will be held in the memory of the machine until released, see FoyerPrinter.
Please be aware that stored print jobs that are not printed by releasing them via the display of the machine within about 1 hour are deleted from the printer's memory, although they have been counted towards your quota when you sent them to the printer!
Virtual PDF mail printer
If you print to the pdfmail printer, a PDF file will be created and sent to your @mytum.de email account.
The number of pages you can print on all physical printers (cip1, cont1, cont2, foyer) is limited. At the start of every month you get 2.50 EUR on your print account. Each printed page costs you 0.05 EUR.
If you exceed your print quota your print jobs will be rejected. Your quota should easily suffice for printing worksheets, e-mails, web pages, etc. We remind you that our printer is not intended for printing large documents like lecture notes and diploma theses.
In some cases the printers cannot interpret (broken) files and will not print these documents that have already been counted towards your quota when passing through the print spooler. We will not "reimburse" your quota for these files, the free printing is a concession anyway.
It is not possible to "recharge" your free print quota. If you want to print beyond your quota, please use the copy machines (see above).
Waiting for printouts
It takes a long time for the printers (especially the copy machine in the foyer) to render high resolution scans. Please try to avoid printing documents with more than 150dpi. If you really must, be prepared to wait for several minutes (or longer) until the printer is finished rendering your job (only then will it appear in the list of documents in the printer's display!). You can check http://cups.ph.tum.de:631/jobs/ to see the current print queue status on the spooler.
