Re: Resolute RIP / Software

could be just the trick as Resolute just ignore me every time I ask to pay to get my RIP updated to help me with issues. They do no like the used market is what I've gathered.

Ouch that hurts even reading it. I was considering getting a couple on eBay without the rip as I thought the software was roughly £1k.
Colin means it was an RJet 5 setup as a food printer not garments.

I would suggest selling as is to someone who already has one and doesn't want the rip and waiting for a deal with it Inc. They come up.

Cheers.

Hi Colin,

No, I'm pretty confident it's an R Jet 5. But thanks anyway.

Basically, does anyone know if the machine can run off ANY other software? I wondered whether CADLInk's Epsom edition would work with it being a vague relative of the 4880.

Thanks
I use both the Resolute and Brother versions of CadLink and both versions are very, very different.

Not a problem, I thought. I know they use a CADLink based system, and that it's a similar system to Brother and available to purchase retrospectively. I therefore also assumed it would be around the same price I.e circa 900 net.

What I'm truly gutted about is finding from a call to their office that Resolute ask a whopping £2400 for a copy of the software.
Now, I didn't expect it to be cheap, but that kind of strikes of opportunism.

Now, before everyone jumps on me and says "why did you not just buy a new machine", I was quite pleased to buy what, for all intensive purposes, seems to be a well maintained machine and for a notable saving on a new one. A quick eBay search gives you an idea of their going rate. A new machine was ultimately just not within budget right now. Couple this with £2400 though, and it rather kills off any desire I have to proceed with Resolute. It would just make me question what else at a later date I'll be charged excessively for.

Dear Rory,

I am sorry you feel that way, the £1950 + vat we charge is included with the price of an R-Jet 5 when purchased from Resolute. Although you did not actually buy an R-Jet 5, you purchased an ex food printer that some one converted for textiles.

In answer to your question, no it cannot run from any other RIP.

Regards
