All manufacturers of dtg printers bundle a RIP with their printer.

The Belquette mod one has special circuitry for the rapid return which makes a 2-pass print extremely fast. The actuall passes are controlled by the RIP but the speed of the printer is due to proprietary hardware. MultiRIP GP will also let you run two passes of color or white but it cannot (no software can) make the printer reload the platten as fast as the mod one.

yes i understand the motion control is a separate board.. so the mod could use the multi rip and achieve the same results-speed it currently does..

The mod one can only be properly controlled by the Belquette RIP because it too has some special requirements. I will say, though, that the mod one's RIP and MultiRIP GP are "siblings" if you get my drift... so the feature set is very similar.

or is both options available with the rip either way?
Both options come with the RIP, so you can choose what option works best for your shop. The only thing I will tell you is Photoshop does a much better job of processing colors compared to CorelDraw. Now Corel has just released CorelDraw X5 and they were to fix a lot of their problems. I have not fully tested Corel X5 so I will reserve my comments. However, you will probably want to get Photoshop Elements at a minimum if you plan on printing photographs. In reality, any dtg business should have both Photoshop and Corel so you can handle the file in the original format that it was created in.

As far as I know you can also control the speed of the printer by sending it a command to the printer through your program (RIP).

I believe what is being talked about in the quote you are referring to is not printing speed, but the speed / time it takes for the platen once it is done printing the underbase layer... to be reset in the "ready to print" mode so the second layer is printed. This has nothing to do with a RIP software that sends the code to the printer to fire ink out of the print head.

The RIP can tell the printer what resolution to print at. A lower resolution will print at a faster speed than I higher resolution. This is typically referred to the printing speed / time, but is not the same as the overall print time it takes to print a garment. The overall print time includes loading a garment, processing the job through a driver or a RIP, moving the platen into the ready to print position, the start-up sequence of printer, the print time, the time to reset the platen to the ready to print position (if you are doing a second layer - which then includes the start-up sequence of the printer and the print time again) and the time to eject the platen.

Hope this clarifies things.

Mark

Mark,
Yes I know all that sort of thing, what I was trying to say is let see,
0--------------------------10
Fast ------------------- Slow
for example
printing 360dpi the printer have three speed option 0, 1, and 2
printing 720 dpi the speed option 3,4, and 5
printing 1440 dpi the speed option 6,7, and 8
So when you are printing in 1440dpi you can tell the printer to print at speed 6 or 7 or 8 (of course the reality is you have to use hexadecimal number)
That is what I am trying to say

thanks bob

well i will definitely try the EXACT brand, for i have already purchased it.

Was hoping someone had a definitive answer or experience with it.. price was decent but if it doesnt match profiles for the rip which most are profiled to dupont from what i understand ....its useless!!!!!
