Swapping the print station and scanner station

February 2020

Author: minos

Gist: The idea has two benefits

  1. It will improve the user traffic, in conjunction with using the fire door as an exit only door. Right now, the users have to congregate aroud the printers which is at the far end of the lab space. It would be much better experience if the users can print (the most common task) and pick up the job on the way out.

  2. The printers are high voltage systems and they emit ozone which is a known hazard - printers emit ozone. Since the lab space has a forced, air circulation system where the stale air is vented out the two doors toward the hallway, swapping the two station will allow the printers be at the end of the air cycle within the lab.
