Color Plotting Instructions

Users within the URI network can plot graphics files to an HP Designjet 4000PS color plotter in Tyler Hall. The color plotter is 42″ wide and uses a continuous roll of paper. The graphics files must be in one of the following formats:

  • Postscript
  • HP-GL/2
  • HP RTL (Raster Transfer Language)


  • Plotter output can be picked up at the Dispatch Counter in the lobby of Tyler Hall.
  • Please use the plotter for the final copy of your output only, insofar as possible.
  • For large plots, it may be necessary to use the HP RTL format to avoid loss of part of the output.
