Here are the steps to print exams to the core photocopier, which is the small one:

Send an email to help@math with your course number and MathNet username to request to print to the core photocopier

Copy your pdf files to a directory/folder on your usb drive

Use your MathNet username and password to log in the printing station in the photocopy room

Connect your usb drive to the printing station

Open a text terminal and run this command: Print-dir YourDirectory CopierCodeOfYourCourse

To print multiple copies of an exam file, open a text terminal and run this command: Print-file YourExamFile CopierCodeOfYourCourse NumberOfCopies

Result: the command will print all files in the directory for you with the double side and staple options on by default. The printed files will be moved to a new directory with the same name_done. We suggest you should try to print a small directory, which contains about 10 pdf files first to see how it works before you print all of your exams.
