Question about Printers & Copiers
Configuring the HP1055CM Driver
Right click on the icon for the plotter (for WinXP, go to Start ->
Printers and Faxes) and select Properties. Make the following
On the tab marked General, click on the Printing Preferences button.
In the window that pops up, select the Paper/Quality tab choose Roll Feed for the Paper Source. Next, click on the Advanced button:
• Under the section called Graphic, click the down arrow next to ICM Method and choose "ICM handled by Host System".
•Under the section on Document Options, there is a section called Postscript Options. Click on the "+", then change "Optimize for Speed" to "Optimize for Portability". Also make sure the "PostScript Language Level" is set to 3.
• In the section Printer Features, set "Scale to:" to "No Change".
• If you wish, under Paper/Output, you can select a default paper size appropriate for the plotter: ARCH E (36in x 48in) seems reasonable. (Note that when you print from an application, you may want to adjust the paper size for your specific plot, and you should also set your document to an appropriate smaller size in the application.)
• Click on OK buttons until you get back to the main window for Properties.
On the properties tab marked Advanced, click on the radio button for Print Directly to Printer.
Also click on the Printing Defaults button, then the Advanced button. If you see a similar set of postscript options like you just went through above, repeat the process to set the ICM method, set postscript options to "Optimize for Portability" and Language Level to 3, change the paper size, and set "Scale to" to no change.
Click on OK buttons until you get back once more to the main window for Properties.
Under the property tab for Device settings, you should change the Output Protocol from ASCII to JPEG. (If there is no JPEG option, select Binary.) It is also helpful to change "Send CTRL-D at end of job" from YES to NO, but that isn't crucial. Under the section marked Installable Options, change the amount of installed memory from "Default" to the closest value below 96 MB, probably 80 MB. (The plotters actually have 96 MB, but since not all of that is available for user jobs, it's better to claim the smaller value. This is still larger than the "default" size, which is about 48 MB.)
