Toshiba e-Studio 4540c (Toshiba Standard and Toshiba Premium) are general multipurpose printers/scanners for smaller format printing. Default settings are B/W double sided A4 pages, but the printers are also capable of printing in colour and in A3. Toshiba Standard uses standard 80GSM paper while Toshiba Premium has higher print and media quality using 120GSM paper. Jobs can be released directly from the printers. Please note that using Toshiba Premium results in extra fees due to higher quality paper.

Workmanship Considerations

  • Printing can be very expensive so make sure to read the Print & Media Guidelines. Check your file for any errors and confirm your print settings prior to sending off your file.
  • To minimise the risk of errors with the machines, please send all files as PDF.
  • The printers work best with smaller files so it is best to minimise file size as much as possible prior to sending off your file. Files that are not flattened in PDF format and/or are larger than 150MB in size may take a long time to print or may not print at all.
  • When scanning A4 or A3 documents, the Toshiba Standard and Premium are the best scanners to use. If you are scanning many pages, USB is more suitable than email, as the maximum attachment size can be exceeded after approximately 6 pages. The document feeder on top of the machine can be used for large multi-sheet jobs.
  • The equipment in the Print & Media Hub is heavily used throughout the semester, particularly around assignment deadlines. Therefore it is recommended to submit jobs well in advance of any deadlines.
  • During peak usage it is not uncommon for issues to arise with the printers. These may occur late at night or on the weekend when the printroom is unstaffed. The machines will be fixed during the next business day.
  • Please see the Fabrication Workshop staff if there are any issues with the equipment in the Print & Media Hub. Please do not attempt to make any adjustments including changing paper or toner without prior approval.
  • Students may apply for a refund if the printer has caused an error with their job. Details on the refund procedure are outlined in the Print & Media Guidelines.
