Within the last couple of months, a local business donated a HP Design Jet 5000 Plotter. Colorful and large, the printer is the perfect item for creating workspace signs for the Electronics, Woodshop and Data Center. The only problem was printing from Windows 8.
Luckily, after hours trying to figure out work-arounds, I found a solution that worked with my Windows 8 machine. Here’s the link:
Although the driver says for HP Design Jet 5500, it works just fine with the HP Design Jet 5000. Just download the driver and find the printer on your network. If you don’t know your printers IP go to the Menu->Utilities->Test prints->Service config. Print out the page and you will find the printers IP at the bottom of the page.
As for printing, you may have to setup a custom page type with 36 in or 42 in wide paper. I printed out this Raspberry Pi emblem as a test page.
