Digital Studio: 2012 Upgrades November 1, 2012Posted by Phil Hudson in : General Information, News , add a comment
Digital Studio 2nd floor computer studios are now running 64 bit Windows 7; all the machines have at least 8Gb Ram that Windows 7 64 bit applications can take full advantage of.
The 64 bit applications now running are:
- AutoCAD 2013
- Autodesk Revit 2013
- 3D Studio Max Design 2013
- Adobe CS6 Photoshop / Illustrator / Premiere / After Effects
Other applications are installed which currently only exist as 32 bit versions and so would not take advantage of the Win64 platform; e.g. Rhino 4, Sketchup, zBrush
There is also a new large format plotter / scanner which has been loaded up with “Wallpaper” style Art Paper on a roll. This is thick, slightly rough, slightly pigmented paper which is very similar to the art paper sold for use in the A1 sheet feed plotter. The advantage of the roll wallpaper plotter is that it doesn’t require jobs to be fed manually one at a time. The plotter can also process the plot jobs more quickly and the standard of plot is much higher (the sheet feeders suffer from green hue when printing black on that paper). The paper is quite expensive and difficult to get so the price is £3.50 per A1. This machine will also scan large format prints up to A0 size; no charge for this.
One issue that is currently affecting plotters is the “sticking” in the setup pages; unfortunately this irritating bug occurs on newer plotters across the University and means you have to be extra patient when specifying size of paper, quality etc. It appears to be an issue between the queue accounting software and the plotter drivers – the central IT team is investigating a solution for this.

The University of Greenwich Department of Architecture and Landscape is a positive and creative environment that, due its location within the School of Architecture, Design and Construction, is Multi and Inter disciplinary by nature; this puts us in a unique position to equip students to address global environmental and technological challenges and bring to the fore cutting edge approaches to Design and Construction, approaches conceived within the context of an efficient and ethical use of resources.
Our programs aim to address and define new trends and knowledge in the field of Architecture and Landscape; to posit new aesthetic systems and codes of representation for Architecture and Landscape; to facilitate a body of knowledge, both practical and theoretical, that allows students to develop and refine their own design language albeit within a rigorous academic framework.
Our students are encouraged, challenged and inspired in equal measure; we offer an environment where students are able to develop skills and practices that will extend well beyond their time at University, while at the same time we make sure that they are given space to flourish as people.
At University of Greenwich Department of Architecture and Landscape we believe we have a responsibility to look forward; to not only deal with what Architecture and Landscape are and were, but to set an agenda for what Architecture and Landscape could be.
