  1. The Ink is closer to 90 to 130 per Cartridge one for each colour , Yellow, Cyan Magenta, PK(Photo Black), MK (Matt Black) and Grey. for your standard plotter.

  2. I work in a very small Industrial museum in Waltham, MA. These Smithsonian visits have been fascinating. I wish I had some of those printers and other facilities at my disposal as I know very well what they can do via my previous job (the machine shown at 16:00 was my workhorse baby for half a decade at that company).

    So familiar and so nostalgic at the same time!

  3. Yeah, I now work for a 3D company so I kinda miss the classic Plotters. Printing a drawing rolling it up walking to a site rep discussing it.
