Printing

At BTH there are many multifunction printers that can be used for printing, copying and scanning.

What do I need to print / copy / scan?
1. A personal PayEx-account to pay for your prints
2. A student account or a BTH card so that you can identify yourself at the printer
3. A connection to BTHprint (see Connecting to BTHPrint further down at this page)

All prints are sent to a common queue called BTHprint, you can get your printouts at any printer (Ricoh) using the BTH card or by logging in with your account.

In student-shared spaces, you will find printers in these places:
• Library, lower floor
• Library, upper floor
• House H floor 4, outside the computer rooms
• House C floor 2, outside the computer rooms
• House C floor 4
• House C floor 2 (plotter) - A0 plot
• House G floor 5 (plotter) - A1 plot

How do I create a Payex account?
To be able to copy and print, you must create a PayEx account for the billing of prints / copies.

  • Start by creating an account at www.payex.se and fill it with at least 100: - Note that you must select the SEK currency.
  • Connect your PayEx account with your BTH account through the link https://print.bth.se:8082/ 
    Enter the email address you chose as your username at PayEx and your BTH username and password. You will receive an e-mail with a single-use code that you must enter on the page, then everything is finished.

    After pairing, it takes about 5 minutes before you see your balance on the printers, and can print. You can now log into your PayEx account and see that you received a BTH agreement in the menu Contract. In your contract there is a sum of SEK 100 stated, it is a safety limit so a print job never can cost more than 100 SEK. However, you can change this to whatever amount you want.


Connecting to BTHprint and print:

  1. Select the print queue BTHprint. (If it is missing - read "Manually Connecting to BTHprint" below.)
  2. Select the print settings (color, single-sided, A3), click Preferences before printing. Default BTHprint is black / white, double-sided (duplex) printing and toner saver mode.
  3. Go to the printer and hold up your BTH card in front of the card reader in order to get your printing. The first time you do this, you must enter your username (NOTE must be in format xxxx12 and not with @student.bth.se) and password to link your BTH card to the printer system.

    Your printouts is in the queue in 72 hours, have you not got them before that it will disappear from the queue.
