CAEDM print driver

The CAEDM Print Driver, or "CAEDM Printer" allows printing to all CAEDM printers and some department printers with a one-click installation on Microsoft Windows. This print driver will appear as the only printer available on most CAEDM Windows computers. For personal computers, it is not necessary to install a device driver or printer object for each physical printer. One easy-to-install and use printer device covers all printing.

Using the CAEDM Print Driver

  • Make sure you are connected through an on-campus wired connection or secure wireless.
  • Once the CAEDM Print Driver is installed, print to the CAEDM Printer as you would any other printer.
  • A CAEDM username and password is required to print to the CAEDM print driver. Since CAEDM provides access to all it's printers from virtually anywhere it is possible to print to an entirely different building! Make sure the printer you select is the printer you want! Printers are named by building, room number, and type of printer. For example cb423psc is in the Clyde Bldg, Room 423, and is a Color Postscript Printer.
