Printing

Access to networked printers maintained by the Department of Chemistry is controlled through the Papercut software package, which bills users for printing on a per-page basis. There are three networked printers, which are only accessible via the print server iprint.chem.washington.edu: 

Location Type Printer Share Name Per-page cost
129 Bagley Hall HP4200 B/W Laser BAG129_HP4200 $0.032
129A Bagley Hall Ricoh MP C307 Color Laser BAG129_RICOH_C307_COLOR $0.182
304L Chemistry Building HP 4014 B/W Laser CHB304L_HP4014 $0.032 ($0.027 duplex)

If your computer is a member of the Chemistry domain you will see these printers (e.g. Bagley129_HP4200 on IPRINT) in your list of available printers. If not, you need to add the printers by following the instructions at the bottom of this page.

Access to these printers is controlled by the Papercut client software, which is the tool that allows you to select the budget to be charged for a print job. Once again, if your computer is already a member of the Chemistry domain then this software will have been automatically installed the last time you logged in. If not, you need to install the Papercut client by following the instructions at the bottom of this page.

Once this software is installed, printing to one of the public printers will automatically launch a dialog that allows you to select a budget number. Directions on how to use the Papercut client can be found here at papercut client usage instructions. The list of budgets you can select from is the same list of authorized budgets you chose from when using the departmental copiers, making a purchase from Chemistry Stores, or when making a reservation for instrument time. If you need to add budgets to this list please contact the Chemistry Purchasing & Accounting office (BAG 109). 

If you have a computer that is NOT part of the Chemistry domain you will need to perform two steps in order configure your computer to allow printing to the departmental printers located in CHB 304L and BAG 129. (In Windows XP, you may check to see if your computer is on the CHEM domain by right-clicking "My Computer" and choosing "Properties" and clicking the "Computer Name" tab. If you are on the CHEM domain the "Domain" will say "chem.washington.edu". In Windows 7, you can right-click "Computer" and choose "properties" and the "Domain" will be listed in that window.) 

  1. Add the shared network printer to your computer or laptop. (You will need to add each printer individually.)
  2. Install papercut client software. (You will only need to install the software once.)
  3. When printing, login and select an account.

If you have any questions regarding the installation or use of the Papercut software, or printing to common printers please contact support@chem.washington.edu.
